APPROACH

Wen acts to achieve equality, justice and joy.

Wen fights global problems around gender, health and our environment by taking action on issues affecting our bodies, homes and neighbourhoods.  We work alongside communities supporting action and get a real-world understanding of women’s lived experiences in the process.  With this knowledge, we create collaborative partnerships with organisations, academics and policy makers to launch projects and campaigns that make a real difference and improve lives.

Where the problem is man-made, the solution is feminist. Our feminist values are at the heart of what we do. This is expressed internally through our shared leadership models, and in the way we run campaigns, by working in collaboration rather than competition. Our membership, networks, coalitions and partnerships bring people and movements together, creating formidable strength through cooperation.

We have never been a traditional environmental organisation. We’ve tackled period taboo, exposed issues around harmful chemicals and promoted local food systems long before the mainstream had any interest. Our approach is not to preach, but to guide through information, shared experiences, workshops, collaboration and events. Wen is a trusted space, with up-to-date research, advice and resources needed to take action.
