My wonderful cousin died a few months ago and I am executing her will. She didn't leave much, and wanted the majority to go to Macmillan and Maggie Centre, but there's some left over (she just didn't live long enough to spend it ) and I'd love for it to help some small women's charities for whom a few hundred quid makes a huge difference. She was an old fashioned feminist and socialist who lived all over the world, so foreign-based charity suggestions most welcome. There's no partner or dependents to consider so I really have free rein!
Let me have your suggestions thank you

What a wonderful legacy. Voices Charity, Bath. It was developed by survivors of domestic abuse and is completely independent, working locally to support women but nationally to influence policy and change. It has just raised enough funds to open a safe space for women to have support and therapy after abuse ( any kind) A few hundred pounds could furnish a therapy room, buy materials for group work or help a woman escape abuse/ recover through the hardship fund.

How about Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Centre? They lost their city funding because they refused to admit biological males.

Thank you, there's some great organisations out there!
Especially interested to hear about the Horton holiday home - I do know a women for whom that might be a dream come true for her and her child.
I'll be at Filia next weekend and hope to research more then. Thanks again 😍

If I had some money right now these are among my priorities to support:
Author Onjal Rauf's https://makingherstory.org.uk - Working to end the abuse, enslavement and trafficking of women and girls in the UK and beyond.
Karen Ingala Smith is Chief Exec for https://niaendingviolence.org.uk ^ - nia has been delivering services for women, girls and children who have experienced sexual and domestic violence since 1975.^
nia is run for women and children by women, providing services developed in consultation with women who have experienced men’s violence, and from a proudly feminist perspective.
What a lovely position to be in, how nice to be able to make a difference.
