"FRIDA | The Young Feminist Fund is the only youth-led fund focused exclusively on supporting global young feminist activism to advance social justice movements and agendas. FRIDA was created to bring new resources and new opportunities to young women and trans* youth globally. We believe that supporting young feminists is key to the expansion, rejuvenation and sustainability of women’s movements and organizations, both now and in the future. To date, FRIDA has completed two grant cycles in 2012 and 2013, and cumulatively supported 32 different groups of young feminists in 28 different countries around the world and awarding a total of 196,000 USD in direct grants.

We are excited to be launching our third call for proposals and intend to support up to 18 new young feminist groups led by young women and transgender youth under 30 years of age.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 28th July 2014

Who can apply?

Groups founded or led by young women or trans* youth (under 30 ykears) that are committed to:

    Advancing and defending women’s rights from a feminist perspective;
    Improving the lives of young women/transgender youth at local, national, regional or international levels;
    Inclusive organizing, collective action and feminist movement building
    Groups, networks, or collectives based in the Global South (Africa, Asia and the Pacific, The Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean and Central, Southern, Eastern Europe and Caucuses and Central Asia).
    Groups founded in the past 5 years (i.e. your group was formed between 2010 – 2014).

FRIDA uses the term ‘feminist’ broadly to refer to individuals working within women’s movements or in other social movements to promote and work towards the safety, equality, justice, rights and dignity of girls, women and other marginalized groups. Based on the understanding that fundamental discrimination occurs within patriarchal systems of domination in all societies, young feminists are determined to challenge, address and change the root causes of these existing inequalities, rights violations and injustice. We recognize that there are multiple feminisms and foster opportunities for expressing those principles in our work. FRIDA emphasizes feminist principles throughout all of its work. These principles include: non-hierarchy, collectivity, participation, diversity, and inclusion. We define young feminist activists as individuals from across the gender spectrum committed to advancing gender equality and women’s rights through explicitly feminist means. FRIDA focuses on activism led by feminists under 30 years of age." Find more info here.
