Women’s Partnership is a feminist organization since it is specifically targeted to help women. Not only does this organization give out grants to non-profit organization that offer the support and well-being to under-deserved women at risk, but this Arizona Women’s Partnership also gives out grants to individuals who helps the community in becoming aware of the issues facing women such as sexism, racism, and social injustice. This organization is also viewed as a feminist activist because of all the facilities it offers women through other non-profit programs like educating women to become independent so they don’t have to rely on men. Also, offering self-defense classes through the police department so these women can be safe and protect themselves instead of depending on men who in return take an advantage of abusing them instead.
