What is Feminist Founders?
We believe that one way to make change happen is to buy the change we want to see
Feminist Founders is a directory of, as well as a support system for, founders, entrepreneurs and business owners who are feminists. We believe we can use purchasing power to make the world a better place.
Feminism is defined as the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. Entrepreneurial feminism promotes feminist values through the process of creating ventures, to improve the position of women in society. An entrepreneurial feminist is a person(s) who transforms lives by working to advance social justice and transmute the economy.
We believe, as Kate Nash does, that feminism is not a dirty word. “It does not mean you hate men, it does not mean you hate girls that have nice legs and a tan, and it does not mean you are a bitch or a dyke. It means you believe in equality”.
We also believe, as PK Mutch does, that feminist founders “generally view the world from the point of view of abundance versus scarcity; There is enough for all of us. But it’s not evenly distributed. This can change”. Systems can change.
Our vision: a world where women’s position in society is greatly improved and equal to the position in society that men now hold.
- to show the world the faces of feminist founders;
- to create local, supportive, in-person communities of feminist founders; and
- to encourage the world to use their purchasing power to make the world a better place.
See why Feminist Founders is one of the ways that we can change the world for the better!
So a speech therapist, a photographer, an office manager and a teacher…realize that titles really tell you oh, so little!
