This Black History Month we are teaming up with Vintage Books to celebrate Black women writers. Every week, we will offer one free book to anyone who signs up to become a Fawcett member (please note this excludes all other membership offers).

From 21 - 27th October, we are offering Heads of the Colored People, a satirical and daring collection of short stories exploring black life from one of America’s rising stars, Nafissa Thompson-Spires.

Becoming a Fawcett member means standing in solidarity with the feminist community, in the knowledge that your support makes a difference to women and girls everywhere.

For as little as the price of a cup of coffee a week, you can be part of our growing movement for gender equality - and receive membership benefits including exclusive feminist content, event discounts and access to our network of feminists around the country. See the full list of membership benefits below. 

We offer several membership options, and you can support us by setting up a monthly direct debit, an annual direct debit, or by making a single annual donation. 

Here’s what you get:

  • Fawcett E-bulletin featuring feminist news, campaigns, polls and promotions straight to your inbox every week
  • Courage Everywhere, our CEO’s monthly take on key issues and campaigns, emailed exclusively to members
  • fawcettfaves, a member’s only monthly email round-up of the freshest feminist stories, hand-picked by the team at Fawcett HQ
