Neighborhood Feminists was founded in 2019 by three individuals who met through activism. The founding members have diverse backgrounds and collective experience in grassroots organising, (international) development projects, and other kinds of community-based activism. They’ve since been joined by a small but growing team of fantastic volunteers, who give Neighborhood Feminists more latitude as an organisation. Keep an eye on this space, as we will periodically spotlight what drives our volunteers and who they are. (And if you’re inspired to join, fill out our form!)

Our website is in English for two main reasons: the three of us have three different native languages, and the women we work with speak a myriad of languages too. English seemed the best middle ground! If you get in touch with us though, feel free to send a message in Dutch too (or Spanish, or French!).
