The Forum for the Empowerment of Women (FEW) is a national, Non- Profit Organisation based in Johannesburg, South Africa, which aims to articulate, advance, protect, promote the rights of black lesbian, bisexual and transgender women (LBT).
We are an organisation which believes in applying our values and commitment to human, women’s and LBT rights both in society and internally within the organisation. We are an activist and feminist organisation. We support and build the ability of LBT women to live and work as human rights defenders.
We view ourselves as an integral part of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTi) sector, the feminist, women’s rights and human rights sectors. Our work, energy and resources are focused and deeply rooted in, informed and shaped by our constituency - LBT women.
