An Affirmation of Feminist Principles
We the undersigned organizations and individuals from across the world come together in this letter to emphasize our shared belief that to achieve justice, equality and liberation, we must combat and dismantle the patriarchal systems of power which continue to oppress and exclude many of us.
We affirm some key feminist principles and their alignment with issues pertaining to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
We reinforce and defend the place that trans, intersex and nonbinary people have alongside many others in feminist movements.
We underscore the recognition that human rights do not distinguish between persons, they are, in their construction, universal, indivisible and inalienable.
We affirm that the realization of the human rights of any one group of persons does not come at the cost of the rights of any others. These shared principles and values have united diverse feminist movements everywhere.
