Engender’s members are very important to us. Both our individual and organisational members bring expertise, insight, and creativity to the challenges of advancing women’s equality.
Joining Engender is a great way to contribute to our work; you can ask us questions, share your views and keep up to date with our projects and events. The different types of membership that we offer are detailed below.
All self-identified women who agree that they are feminists are welcome to join Engender. Membership costs £20 a year, or £5 for students (just put 'student' in the discount code box, and fill our your graduation date).
We want all women to be members of Engender, regardless of circumstances, so it you cannot pay, just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you a discount code for free membership, no questions asked.
Individual members of Engender get:
Engender is a membership organisation, and we welcome women’s organisations, based in Scotland, who share our values to join as members. This includes organisations with women’s section, departments, or units, as well as women only organisations, campaign groups, and societies.
If you are an organisation which doesn’t work specifically on women’s issues, but support our aims and align with our broader values, we’d love to welcome you as an ‘affiliate member’. Please note, we cannot accept membership applications from single-issue groups that campaign against one of our policy advocacy positions. For example, we would not accept membership from a women’s group that campaigned to restrict access to abortion healthcare, to avoid causing confusion about Engender's position on that issue.
Organisational and Affiliate members of Engender can:
When you sign up to be a member, the Engender team will take a look at your application, and may come back to you with any additional information as needed. We endeavour to get back to membership applications as soon as possible, but please note the process is not automatic, so there may be a slight delay.
Please contact Engender if you are not sure whether or not you are eligible, or to discuss fees.
We have set up Friends of Engender after a number of our members asked us if there was a programme for women who wished to give regularly to Engender.
Friends commit to support Engender by contributing at least £5 a month. Regular giving is incredibly important for us as it allows us to carry out work which isn’t funded by traditional trusts and funds. This means we can take action on issues vital to women’s equality which might otherwise be neglected.
All of our members are greatly valued, but we acknowledge the generosity of those who are able to become a Friend.
All women who sign up to be Friends automatically become members of Engender.
If you are already a member and would like to become a Friend of Engender, please contact Alys.
