Feminist Gender Equality Network (FGEN)

Founded in 2021 by Professor Sally Hines, the Feminist Gender Equality Network (FGEN) is a cross-sector, interdisciplinary international organisation that adopts an intersectional feminist framework in order to:

  • advance the understanding of gender and sex as fluid categories
  • protect the rights and needs of people of all (or no) gender
  • counter transphobia and transmisogyny in social life and institutions, legal structures, political movements and media and cultural representation
  • counter sexism and gender-based violence and discrimination
  • further intersectional understanding and political mobilisation to stress the relationship between gender marginalisation and other social inequalities
  • forward self and bodily autonomy and reproductive choice and rights
  • develop social, cultural, legal, and policy frameworks to forward the above, share knowledge and expertise, and develop best practice


FGEN is led by Directors and has a Steering Committee and Advisory Board. More broadly the Network is structured around thematic streams, which bring people together in their areas of expertise. These include: education, health and health care, equality, diversity and inclusion, law and policy, crime and criminal justice, sport, media and visual culture, violence, political representation and trade unionism, the third sector, galleries, libraries and museums, social work and counselling, race and ethnicity, religion and faith, sexualities, families and intimacy, ageing and later life, and employment.

FGEN currently has 1,500 members and is soon to become a CIC.
