WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SOCIETIES
our amazing societies are raising the voices of the women we serve throughout the uk
Our current Student Societies work together throughout the academic year to raise funds and raise the voices of women survivors of war. From campus feminist festivals to intimate film screenings, mitten knitting workshops to clothes swaps, and high heeled runs to sponsored jailbreaks, there truly are no limits to their creativity!
For every £289 our societies raise they can sponsor a woman through Women for Women International’s year-long training programme.
