ABOUT

Womenoccupy.org is a space to connect, share, learn, and build. The Women Occupy community meets once a week by conference call to share our experiences, discuss best practices, and coordinate actions across the occupy movement.

At womenoccupy.org we are working to aggregate and create resources of particular relevance to women and members of the #occupy movement who are committed to confronting patriarchy, heterosexism and transphobia.

Together we can move beyond local occupations to build a truly transformative movement, one in which the voices of the 99% can be heard.

 

Vision:

This website is maintained by CODEPINK: Women for Peace with support from other members of the #occupy movement. CODEPINK has been part of the #occupy movement since planning began for the Wall Street encampment. From the beginning, we have placed special emphasis on ensuring the space is safe for the participation of all marginalized voices and we have participated in organizing from a feminist peace perspective. We have also been creating opportunities for women to share their stories. The Women Occupy website is a continuation of the work we have been doing as part of the OWS movement.

Mission:
To provide women across occupations with resources for creating safer spaces and feminist organizing. Building on the example of Occupy Wall Street, we will help to create and be a space for tools and shared best practices. A space for a conversation beyond local occupations, to allow activists to connect globally. To support the needs of women co-creating equal participation in the movement.

Additional Information:

Why is CODEPINK part of the Occupy Movement?

During our development of the site, we reached out to the administrators of the Women Occupy Tumblr to create a formal connection. Much of CODEPINK’s work is in coordination with like-minded individuals and organizations and we appreciate their generosity in aligning with this effort.
