One of the easiest ways to get involved with the Women’s Department is to join the online communities we have on Facebook. We have two Facebook groups that serve different purposes.
The Social/Alumni group allows members of the Women’s Department, including recent former members and staff, to socialise with their community. You can post memes, articles you found interesting, ask for advice or ask questions, find solidarity, provide recommendations and much more.
All members are expected to preserve the confidentiality of other members’ identities and planning activities, and prioritise the needs of current members. You will need to answer some questions to gain access to the groups, including agreeing to abide by our Safer Spaces Policy. You can find this policy here.
The Organising group is for – you guessed it – organising. In this group we coordinate training, events, campaigns, and advocacy efforts that serve the interests of our members. We post notices of Collective meetings here, so join this group if you want to be involved in the active work of the Department.
We have a non-autonomous Facebook page that members and supporters of the WD can follow. On this page, we post public event notices, any public-facing campaigns, and other things like news items.
