Edinburgh Feminist Network – or EFN emerged out of the organisation of a Reclaim the Night March in 2007, campainging against men’s violence against women. It has eveolved and changed in ma ny ways depending on the attitude, political veiws, and time commitments of its members – at one time opertating with a close knit collective with shared goals.
At the moment EFN is a more fluid organisation – its main activity is hosting open discussion space, in the form of a monthy discussion group, and maintaining a email discussion list.
At the moment the discussion group is women only, trans freindly, accessible, with children welcome. All veiwpoints on the issues discussed are welcomed, and disagreement and discussion is veiwed as healthy :- in the context of a safe and respectful space.
There are a number of feminist, gender and women’s movement groups emerging in Edinburgh, and EFN gives out information about them, and how people can get involved, and sometimes have overlapping members: these include Ladyfest Edinburgh, an IT project, and a Feminist Friday based challenging pornography group.
If your interested, want to come along, or have any questions please do ask, all newcomers are warmly welcomed. Theres usually tea and cake at meetings!
