Thank you to everyone who has submitted nominations for our 2020 prizes. Nominations are now closed.
This is the second year in which we are collaborating with the Centre for Women’s Justice. We will award two prizes; one for a woman or group campaigning on violence against women and one for a woman or group using the law to hold the state to account on violence against women.
We don’t expect to be able to gather in person to celebrate our nominees this year but we won’t let that stop us drawing attention to women’s vital campaign work and we look forward to celebrating 2020 and 2021’s nominees in a bigger and better than ever celebration next year.
2020 has already been an extraordinary year. The government’s handling of the Covid-19 crisis has acted again and again to further entrench existing inequalities, including through the further marginalisation of women, of disabled women and men, and of Black women and men. Activism has never been more vital.
We are in solidarity with anti-racist campaigners and all those resisting state violence, and we especially welcome nominations celebrating the work of Black feminist campaigners.
The awards will be announced at the end of October.
