Women’s Aid is driven by our feminist principles and values, which are shared by the members across our federation. We empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of our work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.
Women’s Aid was founded on women’s struggle against patriarchy, sexism and male violence and grew out of the Women’s movement in the 70’s and 80’s. Today we take an intersectional approach to our work to end domestic abuse and stand with other feminist organisations leading the way in eradicating Violence Against Women and Girls.
