Feminist Webs is a ‘women and girls work space’ that acts as an archive and a resource for practitioners, volunteers and young women involved in youth and community work with young women. Our bias is toward work which encourages participation and is from a perspective that focuses on women’s rights and experiences. We pride ourselves on working across the generations in everything we do, and include people in many communities in our work, including people of all races, sexualities, classes, faiths (and of no faith), academics, practitioners, and everyday people who want to see a better world for women.
We are based in North West England but many of our resources are not geographically specific.

We produce a monthly e-Newsletter, which anyone can subscribe to.
In 2008, the Feminist Webs Archive was set up by a group of young women, their female youth workers and allies. The collection is ever-growing with contributions from older, feminist youth workers and consists of photographs, banners, leaflets, magazines, oral ‘her-stories’ and various other documents that are related to feminist youth work with girls and young women. The physical collection is held at the People’s History Museum in Manchester, and the digitised material is available through our Resources search page.
