The FPI Leadership Institute is an initiative of Filipina Pen & Ink, an all women writing collective based in the Philippines.
The institute aims to provide spaces for global conversations among women and young women on issues on sexual and reproductive health, violence against women and children, women and trade, women and climate justice, indigenous women, conflict, militarisation and development aggression.
The FPI Leadership institute aims to raise awareness on the role of women and young women in these development issues and be able to cultivate efforts and actions geared towards building a more just and feminist framework of development.
Pen & Ink believes first and foremost that violence is done through gender in a continuum and that it is found in various intersections in the personal and the political across varied identities. This violence is further reinforced through messages found in social structures and our current transition into a transnational community which sets the stage for increasing marginalisation and exploitation of women in different sectors.
The FPI Leadership Institute encourages action through mobilisation, exposure and support of campaigns on both global and local calls on our priority / thematic areas mentioned above. Filipina Pen & Ink also provides assistance on program development and implementation / program support, as well as media support.
In campaigning for global and local calls that fight for and with women, we seek to counter sexist, male-centric and misogynistic messages and help form alternatives that call for a just community .
If you are an individual/ women’s / people’s organization who works on or is interested to work on sexual and reproductive health, violence against women and children, women and trade, women and climate justice, indigenous women, conflict, militarisation and development aggression issues kindly send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
