I'm just gonna carry over my ticket from this year. Very much looking forward to it and seeing MNetters again!! Could really use a feminist party right about now.

I was SO looking forward to my first ever trip to Filia.
Obviously 2020 has been the year of cancelled plans, and I do understand that is the least of many people's problems.

Anyway Filia 2021 ! Can't wait.

I can't remember - did they issue refunds or automatic carry over to next year?

Have found the relevant section in the email. I would have been happy for my ticket to have become a donation so I will check the details and buy a solidarity ticket if mine has already been carried over.

FiLiA is sad to announce that we will be postponing this year's conference to 2021. We have made the difficult decision after taking into account uncertainty around whether we will be able to gather in such large numbers by October, and after speaking with many of those involved, including venue management and attendees (particularly older and disabled Women as well as those affected by increased poverty). Tickets (including Solidarity Tickets) already purchased will be carried over to 2021, with the option for a refund where requested.

I know they were gutted to have to cancel but I think with the Covid it was always going to have to be pulled this year. Last year's was my first and it was just brilliant. Looking forward to 2021!

It is a bit weird to think it's a whole other year away instead of just a couple of weeks. But I hope we'll be able to wave at each other FannyCann and FeedTheSparrows!

Been reading Dr Em's blog on Holbeck, which is so powerful. Also depressing:

Hi,

We've just started a local FiLiA Feminist book group in Portsmouth where the FiLiA2021 conference is going to be held.

I wonder if Mumsnet is the place to find Portsmouth Women who might be interested?

Just joined Mumsnet, and finding my way around; so impressed by the Feminism going on here!

Sisterhood and Solidarity!

Welcome, FiliaLMT!

Not in Portsmouth myself, but hopefully you will find some locals here.

Hi @FiLiALMT I'm in Southampton and desperately trying to find a feminist group that doesn't Centre males. I'll certainly be up for joining you.

Welcome FiLiALMT!
And thank you to FiLiA for a brilliant statement on the GRA announcement:

Where can I email you?

FiLiALMT Wed 23-Sep-20 13:23:21

I tried putting the email address, but it kept reverting to my user handle (hence me needing to learn how to use the platform!)

Will try again :-)
