Founded in 2010, the idea of LOOM was built on the idea that women of Nepal are born free but our existence is compromised by the inherent discriminatory social practices. We are discriminated on the grounds of disability, sexual identities, ethnicity, gender, class, religion, caste, and geography that are reinforced by patriarchy and translated into control over mobility, physical integrity, psychology and sexuality. And we want to be free, and define our lives. We want to reimagine our feminist movement, co- exist with diversity of women, rethink alternative mode of sustainability, and reframe languages of equality and transformation.
We are a group of individuals and organisations dedicated to movement building, young women’s leadership, sexuality and bodily integrity, LBT rights and feminist politics of the Internet. LOOM works at local and national levels.
An equal society where women from multi generation have access to agencies and have freedom to decide for them and communities based on political participation and ownership
LOOM mobilises with allies to bridge capacities on organizational development, bodily integrity, generate feminist knowledge and movement to transform structures that that inhibit equality
