XX are a youth-led feminist network. We believe freedom of assembly, association, opinion and expression are fundamental principles of women’s liberation.

We are a group of young women based in the UK and Ireland from a range of backgrounds. We have over half a decade of experience in feminist campaigning and are able to offer practical support, advice and resources to young women looking to get involved in activism or who have experienced hostility over their feminist views. We also connect women with other feminists and help them build local networks. 

We formed because we have witnessed an increasingly hostile climate develop towards women who assert the reality of biological sex or wish to discuss the exploitation within the sex trade. We maintain that there is nothing hateful about discussing women’s rights and to argue such is a new version of misogyny that seeks to prohibit women from fully engaging in public life.
