Инициативная группа «За феминизм» объединяет людей разных политических взглядов.
Наша цель - пропаганда феминизма, что подразумевает борьбу с патриархатом за достижение гендерного равенства и за искоренение дискриминации женщин во всех сферах жизни.
Мы считаем, что с гендерной дискриминацией можно бороться только совместно, преодолев барьеры между разными политическими силами.
