THE FEMINIST HUMANITARIAN NETWORK
The Feminist Humanitarian Network is an international network of women leaders committed to a transformed humanitarian system that promotes a feminist humanitarian agenda.
Who we are
The Feminist Humanitarian Network is member based, comprised of local and national women’s rights organisations, national and regional women’s networks, international NGOs, academic organisations, funding instituitions, and individuals.
Our vision is of a global humanitarian system that is responsive, accountable and accessible to women and their organisations, in all their diversity; that challenges rather than perpetuates structural inequalities.
Together, we are working to strengthen the agency and amplify the voices of women in emergencies.
For too long, the needs of women have gone overlooked by the humanitarian system, and their leadership and voices have been ignored.
Women leaders all over the world are taking action. Change is coming.
As Feminist Humanitarian Network members we believe in women's collective power to transform the humanitarian system and commit to the following:
To value women’s rights, contributions, lived experiences, and solutions as feminist alternatives to disrupt the humanitarian system.
To create a safe and inclusive environment where the autonomy, identity, and diversity of all members, is respected and acknowledged.
To work within the Network according to feminist principles, and be conscious of power dynamics, working to transform power relationships, including funding.
To be accountable to other members and to the women we are supporting through our collective and decisive actions.
To recognise the collective power of the Feminist Humanitarian Network to provide sustainable solutions for global justice.
