Women Joining Forces


Women across the UK are joining forces to defend women's sex based rights, organising co-ordinated action nationally, regionally and locally.

These groups offer women a safe space to talk freely and compassionately in support of workable evidence-based and meaningful legislation, respectful of women's sex based rights.

Women Be Organising!


Why do people call you the "Shopper Groups"?

The Women's Rights Network grew out of every day women connecting on social media, discussing and sharing concerns on sex-based rights issues locally to them.

They decided to meet in person, to make their presence known and in doing so faced online harassment when discussing meeting.

So, instead, they talked about going to meet to go "shopping". Other women around the UK noted that they wish they knew women local to them to "go shopping with" and the shopping groups were born.


From those initial groups, a countrywide network of women have joined forces to actively and respectfully discuss our sex-based rights. We offer support to one another. We make our concerns known and push for workable solutions.

We shrug off stereotypes and turn name calling into humour.

We know what is REALLY important.
