Nominations for the 2016 Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize are now open!
In the context of the on-going refugee crisis, Brexit, and the rise in racist hate crime that has come in it's wake we are particularly interested in recognising women whose campaigning addresses violence against Black and minority ethnic women.
Nominations will close on the 24th of December and this year's prize giving ceremony will take place in March 2017.
As always we can't wait to read about the amazing work our sisters are doing.
Thank you to all the women who came to our awards ceremony at the Feminism in London conference on the 25th of October, and thank you to all our amazing nominees!
This year we received such amazing nominations that the judges decided to give two individual awards - one to Gabriella Gillespie, author of A Father's Betrayal and one to Cath Elliot, a trade unionist and journalist whose writing focuses on male violence against women.
The nominees for this year's Emma Humphreys prize have been announced. Join us at Feminism in London on the 25th October to find out who the winners are. The nominations for this year's individual award focus on women who have challenged male violence against women through their writing.
