as in the National Organisation for Women?

There seems to be quite a few feminist networks around but no umbrella body for UK feminists. There is feminists but that seems more like a website than a RL org IYKWIM?

There's UK feminista? Or do you mean something different?

I recently came across the European Women's Lobby www.womenlobby.org/.

It's not UK-specific but since so much is decided at EU-level these days, I thought it was worth mentioning.

Well there was the Women's National Commission....until the fuckers Coalition axed it.
I think there's something called National Association of Women's Organisations too.
