The Women’s Caucus of Deep Green Resistance is fundraising to provide a stipend to a point person who will head up feminist organizing within and on-behalf of DGR.
The women of Deep Green Resistance are hard at work fighting pipelines, protecting forests, defending prairie dogs and buffalo, creating alternative media, supporting camps like Standing Rock, participating in direct action and street protest, resisting pornography and prostitution, challenging regressive gender fads, founding and running grassroots organizations, and bottom-lining the continued work of DGR.
— How to Support —
These funds would allow one woman to organize, support, and bring together these women to create a stronger and more effective resistance. If you believe in the goals of feminism, and would like to provide support to a grassroots organizer working for radical feminism, please donate and share! Sharing is very helpful, especially if you are able to post regularly or share on your social media, website, mailing list, etc.
We’d like men to be the primary donors to this fundraiser. This is one way that males inside and outside of our organization can stand in solidarity with the women of DGR and the project of feminism.
— Solidarity —
The men in DGR recognize that women often take on the bulk of the support work both within DGR, and in their home lives where they are often the main caregivers of children, men, and the elderly. Women are not paid for this tremendously difficult and necessary work. Women are also paid less for their work within patriarchy while constantly struggling against multiple forms of misogyny.
The women of DGR face all of these challenges as they work to organize as a group, and they deserve our support. In order to show our support for women as they organize separately, we are pledging to collect the funds deemed necessary by the Women’s Caucus to pay a Chairwoman to coordinate their work for one year.
— About the Women’s Caucus —
This is the official description of the Women’s Caucus:
“We are the women in Deep Green Resistance. As women, we all have had different experiences and have different perspectives. We also have common issues and common goals we can agree on that are central to dismantling civilization. Patriarchy is part of the backbone of civilization and the structure of women’s oppression. We in the women’s caucus assert that there is no place for machismo in Deep Green Resistance. If we truly desire to do away with patriarchy, men can no longer partake in displays of masculinity that feed and sustain male supremacy.
We have come together to voice our concerns and expectations. We expect to be asked for our voice on policies within DGR, especially as they pertain to women’s space and DGR’s stance on feminism.”
