With the goal of raising awareness regarding discrimination and violence against women and girls, WomenBeing’s mission is to create online and offline strategies that help to understand stereotypes and misconceptions related to feminism.
The Edinburgh based social enterprise, is led by a community of passionate advocates, and intends to contribute to gender equality with the deconstruction of gender-bias.
We facilitate discussion and exchange of knowledge in international forums and events, focused on the main challenges facing women in today’s society, and on the ways in which we can, individually and collectively, propose solutions to these problems, and empower women in an intersectional way (inclusive of transgender women).
We foster the social impact of academy and research, combining the knowledge of academics, charities, government, social enterprises, companies, and individuals, share their work, ideas, and research related to gender and women.
We facilitate the dialogue between all agents, and make the information freely available to the general public.
WomenBeing is a volunteer and women led organisation.
