Women’s Health West’s Working in a Feminist Organisation Tool Kit was developed to support feminist governance and operations. It forms part of our orientation pack for new staff and board directors and has been designed for ease of use in other feminist women’s health services.
The tool outlines the particular principles and defining features of contemporary feminist organisations that differentiates them from mainstream services, and the process that WHW undertook to develop and implement a feminist workplace audit. The audit tool allows us to measure where we are succeeding, as well as assessing areas of feminist theory, practice and behaviour that we need to strengthen.
The audit tool forms part of a larger package that recounts the story of WHW’s feminist beginning, provides an overview of the feminist theoretical perspectives that inform our work and details our shared understanding of feminism.
