About Fòs Feminista

Fòs Feminista is an intersectional feminist organization centered around the sexual and reproductive rights and needs of women, girls, and gender-diverse people. Led and governed by the Global South, Fòs Feminista works as an alliance of organizations in 40+ countries worldwide to advance sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice. Fòs Feminista is both the connective tissue that links these diverse partners in an alliance and an active participant in the broader ecosystem of actors working on sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice (SRHRJ).

Fòs Feminista orchestrates transnational and transregional action by connecting partners throughout the SRHRJ ecosystem, amplifying innovative partner-led solutions to SRHRJ issues, and catalyzing funding and political will for an intersectional feminist agenda on SRHRJ.

We recognize that the ability of women, girls, and gender-diverse people to make free and informed choices about their sexual and reproductive lives, including to access safe and legal abortion, is central to their life plans and to achieving gender and reproductive justice. Together with partners in the Alliance, we provide access to sexual and reproductive health care and services, including contraception, abortion, and care for victims of gender-based violence, and we reach young people with comprehensive sexuality education.

We are at the forefront of advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) from an intersectional lens in national, regional, and global spaces, coordinating with our partners to ensure that diverse experiences, priorities, and voices of the Global South are represented in these spaces. And we strengthen intersectional feminist movements and organizations by creating and holding space for partners to participate in an international community built on feminist values of sharing power, diversity, mutual learning, and solidarity, and to access resources to strengthen their work.

Fòs Feminista, Equipop, PSI Europe, and the Global South Coalition for Dignified Menstruation (GSCDM) have formed a strategic consortium to advance feminist agendas and movement strategies for achieving menstrual health and dignity (MHD).

Working in alliance with partner organizations in ten countries in Africa, Asia Pacific and the Caribbean, the Sang pour Sang project aims to transform the structural drivers of menstrual discrimination so that women, girls, and gender-non-conforming people in all their diversity have the information, services, and supplies, and infrastructure they need to exercise their right to menstruate with dignity, free of shame, taboos, fear, embarrassment, pain, social exclusion, discrimination, and violence. We are currently looking to hire a highly motivated bilingual (French and English) Intern for the Sang pour Sang project. This is a remote position.
