How much of your time are you able to donate to gender justice organizations this year? Along with whatever annual membership dues you may choose to pay, SGP asks all new or renewing members to consider pledging 4-40+ Solidarity Hours to any intersectional feminist cause, organization or initiative. And then if you like, you can let us know about how you've fulfilled your SGP Solidarity Hours!

Membership Terms


SGP members are based in a variety of contexts and locations around the world. Instead of a fixed sum or scale for membership dues, we suggest that members contribute the equivalent monetary value of a meal at a restaurant in their local context. ;

Consider the following sliding scale membership fee examples (expressed in US dollars):
$2 - $15 Cost of a breakfast
$5 - $20 Cost of a lunch
$8 - $50 Cost of a dinner
$50 - $200 Cost of a night out for a family

To keep SGP membership as accessible as possible for diverse feminists around the world, paying dues is not an absolute requirement. If there is any financial or technical barrier to registration, reach out to for support processing your annual membership. 

Also, members may choose to commit a certain number of hours of time to rights-based initiatives, which we refer to as “solidarity hours,” as a part of their membership dues, or in place of a financial payment.

May your Solidarity Initiative hours contribute to feminist movement-building and gender justice across our global communities!
