An intersectional Feminist Approach
Guided by our intersectional feminist approach in our work to end violence against women and girls, Cardiff Women’s Aid in practice:
• Ensures the safety, freedom and equality of women and their children is at the heart of everything we do, and considers the relationships between gender and power in all of our work.
• Works collaboratively to identify and transform systems of power and privilege that oppress and marginalise.
• Recognises that there is diversity within individuals, communities and identities, as well as between them and centering the diversity of these experiences, voices and leadership in our work.
• Actively reflects on and addresses our own relationships to power and privilege, and embeds inclusivity, diversity and accessibility across all of our work.
We are committed to continual learning, reflection on and development of our approach around constantly improving our diversity, inclusion and intersectionality
Evidence, Practice, Expertise and Lived Experience
We recognise the importance of
evidence based interventions but we also recognise the importance of ensuring different kinds of evidence and knowledge inform our work in capability development, policy and institutional advocacy, and primary prevention.
Our work is informed not only by traditional research and data but also by the practice experience of the professionals who work in this field, and by women, children and young people’s lived experiences of gender, discrimination, harassment, oppression and violence.
Partnerships And Collaboration
Working collaboratively means connecting or partnering with individuals, organisations, and networks to achieve our vision of a world free from gender based violence and establish a truly coordinated community response.
Ending violence against women requires large-scale, long-term effort and we recognise that we are but one agency that has a role in working to achieve mass change.
Partnerships and collaboration benefit our work and our staff, and support other agencies to build their knowledge. Most importantly, partnerships ultimately aim to benefit the women and children whose lives we aim to have a positive impact on.
