2018 saw the start of grassroots feminist groups springing up around the country.

2019 is not slowing down.

If you aren't following all these women on Twitter, you should!

@liverpoolresis1 - Liverpool ReSisters
@sheffieldwomen - Women of Steel ReSisters
@lresisters - Lancashire ReSisters
@iresisters - Ireland ReSisters
@resistersu - ReSisters United UK & Ireland

There are more groups in the works.

We are growing!

Anyone in the cambridge/Northants area who'd be interested?

LiverpoolReSisters Thu 10-Jan-19 21:16:13

We'll try to update this thread when other groups show up. There is a lot of activity behind the scenes, and it's only the 2nd week in January.... keep your eyes peeled, 1Million.

Amazing thread! So exciting to hear about all these groups. They can’t silence all of us!

No, they can't.

Yeah.

Growing. Getting involved with the Lancashire group.

Apologies for place marking; I am hoping my area appears soon!

LiverpoolReSisters Sat 12-Jan-19 17:31:44

Terfnserf There's nothing stopping you from forming a group, just need to contact ReSisters United for a chat and support.

We can't stop anyone from forming their own groups, nor would we want to. But any coordinated effort would require a bit of vetting.

forwomen.scot/ are similar in Scotland

theresaspiderinthesink Sat 12-Jan-19 20:24:33

So glad Newcastle has popped up!

Anything in London? Was sad I missed the London meeting at the end of last year - would love to find a London group.

CharlieParley Sat 12-Jan-19 21:20:34

failing there's quite a few of us in Scotland. After not having anything to do with women's rights for next to half a century, I'm now a proud member of 3(!) new women's rights groups (2 national, one local) here in Scotland and also currently contemplating starting a small group near where I live. I know for sure that Edinburgh and Glasgow are very active, I think there is possibly a group in Dundee.

If you want to find out more, DM me, I'm happy to chat. I will also be at the first public meeting of our For Women Scotland group which is going to be on Thursday 31 January and would be happy to meet you there. I'm not going to go public on Mumsnet, but I'll be out and proud beyond my hometown in 2019. That's my New Year's Resolution and damn the consequences.

Thanks R0wantrees, I've also posted this event in its own thread now.

Birmingham is up.

I am starting a tiny group of 1 called BedriddenReSisters! No, seriously, it makes me feel so happy to see this groundswell of true feminism arising. I am old now and unable to do anything physical to help, but huge mental support from me to you all.

Cuntysnark Sun 13-Jan-19 10:17:15

Delighted to see Birmingham up!

birdsdestiny Sun 13-Jan-19 10:32:01

Is there a way of contacting the Newcastle group, I am not on Twitter and when I googled their Twitter page it says not available.

NoseringGirl Sun 13-Jan-19 12:30:30

I'm excited to see a Newcastle group, will have a look on Twitter!

LiverpoolReSisters Sun 13-Jan-19 12:33:32

wrt Newcastle, there's been some confusion behind the scenes, but hopefully it will be sorted soon.
