an intersectional disability justice collective

Image Description: 

A photo taken during the Women’s march 2020. On the left side of the picture sits Jeanette Chedda, who is holding the hand of Mira Thompson. Mira is sitting on the right side of the picture. Chedda is a brown woman with curly brown hair and a wide smile. She’s wearing a yellow scarf and a black hoodie. Mira is a white woman, she’s smiling at the viewer. She’s wearing her long blonde hair in a braid, the braid hangs over her green scarf. Both women are in a wheelchair. Behind them, you can see a lot of protestors and various signs they carry with them. On the sign behind Chedda is written ‘if you don’t fight for all women, you fight for no women’ and on the sign behind Mira is written ‘noBODY left behind’ with emphasis on body.

Welcome to the website of Feminists Against Ableism (FAA). FAA is an intersectional disability justice collective made up of disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent feminists. We fight against ableism (the exclusion/discrimination of disabled people).

On this website you can read about who we are, what we do and what we fight for. However, the English version of our website is as of yet incomplete. If you have a specific question, please feel free to contact us.

Due to our diverse and changing access needs and energy levels, this site is currently a bit more empty than we would like. While we are slowly working on changing this, you can find us on Instagram in the meantime. You can also refer to our entry on Wikipedia (in Dutch) if you’d like.

Project FAA-QueerCrip

FAA-Queercrip is a project by Feminist Against Ableism members and non-members, who wish to specifically work on issues relating specifically to queer disabled people. As a group, they will work from the same intersectional angles as FAA but specifically focus on queer disability justice. This project is still in the start-up phase, so if this is something you are interested in joining, please send a message to FAA or visit the queer crip Instagram.
