History and views
In 2008, Feminist Fightback supported London Underground cleaners who went on strike over a living wage, sick pay, 28 days' holiday, final salary pension, free travel and an end to third party sackings.
Feminist Fightback argues that public sector cuts have a disproportionate effect on women, and it has campaigned against what it perceives as the disproportionate effect of austerity measures on women.
Feminist Fightback are amongst a number of groups, organisations and activists in the UK (including Calais Migrant Solidarity, No One Is Illegal, and London No Borders) campaigning for migrants' rights and freedom of movement and against immigration controls.
