One of our goals is: “Promoting intersectional feminism through spaces and experiences.”
What kinds of spaces and experiences are we talking about?
- Spaces: Physical spaces taken over for periods of time, to facilitate work, creativity, organizing, collaboration, etc. (Possible future permanent home)
- Experiences: Single events or series of conversations, entertainment, workshops, etc.
Here are some of the types of spaces & experiences that we’re currently organizing:
Some spaces and experiences may be created with feminist womxn primarily in mind. Men are not excluded from these experiences, but these oasis experiences are created to provide much-needed space and experiences that are safe spaces for womxn to celebrate their commitment to feminism, and are as close to patriarchy-free as possible (oasis!).
- Feminism: A movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation and oppression.
- Womxn: (defined as those identifying as women, including cis women, trans women, femme-identifying and gender non-binary folks.)
Recognizing that feminism as a movement cannot be successful or sustainable without including all people of all genders, we will regularly organize educational, consciousness-raising groups, panel discussions and community conversations that we encouraging people of all genders, who are curious about feminism and willing to listen and/or respectfully engage, to join us.
We will be regularly publishing action plans containing several different kinds of actions that you can take to help promote intersectional feminism. These may range from talking to your friends, family or coworkers about certain issues, calling or writing your local or federal elected officials on an issue, sharing your story, joining existing aligned community mobilization efforts, educating yourself on a specific topic, word, perspective or history, etc. Some actions may be organized as events.
Our subscribers and members will receive companion materials mailed to them upon publication of each new action plan.
Feminist Coworking Sessions / Workshops
Feminist Oasis pop-up coworking sessions and series provide a space where like-minded feminist-aligned entrepreneurs, consultants, freelancers and creative folks with flexible work situations can come together, work together, learn from each other in a setting built around feminist business values. These sessions provide a facilitated goal-setting kickoff, a workshop exploring feminist business principles, access to our feminist resource library, breaks for collaboration and discussion, and a session-ending report on accomplishments. Some coworking series may also offer discounted offerings from our host partners and other perks. Our coworking sessions and workshops are for all genders.
