Womankind is a charity that works with and for women to help them achieve autonomy. Currently they are working with victims of FGM and domestic violence in Kenya. If you are a British resident and you make a donation to Womankind before 5th June the UK Government will match it pound for pound.

I have been giving to this charity for many years, and believe that it does good work. Whatever your political views, if you have a few pounds to spare this month, this would be a good place to send it.

(And more politically: I believe that this government's direct policies are likely to impact adversely on many women across the world in many different ways. This is one area in which I believe they are behaving relatively well, and one way you can help redress the balance somewhat, even if only to the smallest degree.)

Only if you have some to spare. One's first obligation is to oneself. Only give after that and only what you can spare. And there are many, many worthy calls too...

I'm mostly just signal boosting for what little that is worth. I did give them some money, but then I give them some most years and it's the first time the UK Government matched my donation, I think. And it wasn't much. And it looks like I may be about to skip the SFF/BSFA AGMs, which will save most of it.

I do actually have a standing order to them, so I hope this will qualify for matching.
