Feminist Movement-Building

linnah-matanya-malawi-jassJASS’s core mission is to build, strengthen and galvanize women’s collective power for a just and sustainable world – for all. By “collective power” we mean the ability to create change that comes through grassroots organizing, alliance-building among diverse constituencies and galvanizing networks of allies around shared vision and agendas. In other words—movements.

JASS puts movement building at the heart of our work, believing that the change women want comes from the movements they build. History teaches us that change in institutions, social attitudes, policies and decision- making, as well as in our every day lives, especially for women, is made possible through the sustained demands and organized action of movements.

Feminist Movement Building: JASS calls our movement-building “feminist” because our work encompasses the struggles in women’s personal lives for dignity, safety, equality and control of our bodies, as centrally as their shared organizing and leadership in public arenas. All our work is imbued with an understanding of the need to challenge and transform power relationships so that women can rise and flourish.

"You can’t build a movement without a strong compelling vision. You need the courage to move in a bold new direction where feminist ideas are born, innovation is fueled, and change happens." ~

The feminist movement has turned into a sad joke. Look how they treated Lewinsky after the Clinton mess...they FULLY supported Clinton. Gloria Steinem herself defended Clinton!
Last year, I read about the University of...I think it was Iowa. Anyway, their entire visitor's locker room is PINK. Pink floors, pink walls, pink lockers, pink showers...hell, they even have pink urinals!! 2 female faculty members were OUTRAGED. They said it's offensive to women and homosexuals. Give me a f*ing break! Feminists just LOOK for things to be pissed off about.
