  • SHAKTI RESEARCH | shaktiwomen

    SHAKTI RESEARCH Shakti Women leaders all have a grounding in research. Siobhan has held 3 research fellowship positions with the University of Birmingham and Keele University. We also have a long track record of talking to our beneficiaries about what women want. Our primary and secondary research is the cornerstone of our work and informs all of our projects. As well as our own PINK PAPER, updated every 4 years, we have been commissioned by a range of stakeholders to consult with the sector and to support tomorrow’s leaders. For more information talk to Siobhan. What is the Pink Paper? ​ At the current rate of progress, it could take another 200 years before women experience true gender equality. We’re not waiting that long; we want progress now! ​ At Shakti we pride ourselves in doing work that is grounded in 'need', so as well as regularly asking you what you want with our own surveys, we collect and collate the research that’s currently out there. ​ The Pink Paper is 80+ pages of research about the issues affecting women and girls in the UK today, from pay and mental health, to representation and the workplace. ​ Head over to our 'treats' page to download our Pink Paper. ​ You'd be a fool not to, so, get downloading! ​


    CURRENT PROJECTS Write Mind: Creative Writing We want women to harness their inner strength and develop the tools they need to navigate everyday challenges and build powerful networks. We provide a series of writing, talking and self-development workshops designed to help women explore these issues, express their feeling and find their voice. ​ We use creative writing to give women the ability to express their feelings such as anger, rage, confusion and create spaces where women can develop their strength and resilience and self-care tools. Giving women the power to be more resilient in response to new and future challenges. Self-Expression Session ​ The empowerment-focused project in parntenrship with Jan Foundation aims to provide women with powerful outlets, to destress and connect with themselves on a deeper level. By engaging in these creative forms, women can explore their emotions, express themselves freely, and cultivate a strong sense of personal well-being. As women we carry so much, so we listened and created workshops that help to alleviate stress and foster deeper self-awareness. Here's a peak at some of the workshops we have done : Self-love Meditation Art Yoga Songwriting Spoken Word ​ Every Tuesday, 7 pm & Saturday 10am at the Shakti Office. ​ Shakti Saturday Girls Club ​ A weekly Saturday Club for girls to meet, develop their creativity and be their most authentic, audacious and vibrant selves. ​ We aspire to raise the confidence and aspirations of young girls aged 9 -15 . We support them by growing them into successful women. We are no longer raising girls but future CEO's, business women, lawyers, artists - whatever they desire. We want to cultivate strong minded, brilliant and talented girls that take life by the horns. ​ We are not your typcial Saturday Club teaching girls how to win academically but we are teaching girls to win in LIFE. Every Saturday in June from !pm - 3pm. ​ Domestic Abuse Awareness Shakti Women, in collaboration with the Jan Foundation, compassionately presents a series of workshops on Domestic Violence awareness. We aim to shed light on the various forms of abuse, including physical, domestic, sexual, psychological, financial, and more. Whether you are a survivor or have experienced loss due to Domestic Violence, this workshop is dedicated to supporting you. Join us in a safe, educational, and open environment on Zoom. Time: 7pm - 9pm. ​ Creative City: Womanhood ​ Exploring Womanhood, will work with ordinary women to define, celebrate, and express their womanhood. We encourage women through dance, drama, spoken & written word, to explore the joys, the rage, the pain, the sensuality, and the burdens of being a woman in today’s society. We will use dance, themed workshops, and creative writing to help women to explore the impact of these everyday issues, focusing on some common themes of Sexuality, Sensuality, Rage, Power, Subjugation, Resurrection, Power, Shame, Abuse, Sexism & Misogyny that so many women deal with on a daily basis. Attracting a curious & eclectic mix of women of all ages & ethnicities to our participatory workshops. We anticipate this project to be a cacophony of voices. We will be upholding the values of the commonwealth by Inspiring, engaging and connecting communities through creative writing and dance, to realise their full potential and live happier, healthier lives.This project will build the confidence and self-esteem of our users as we explore their hidden depths.

  • My funeral - my words

    My body is just a shell Don't waste any money on any extravaganza Share stories about me with each other Wear bright clothes Touch each other's souls Come with a smile Clap a little, dance a little and cry a little if you wish You will not be able to see me because my body would perish but my essence will be so very close to you. Remember that while you might be weeping I will be laughing. If you really feel that you want to spend some money to mark my homecoming then feed as many mouth as my age, plant trees and just love one another- your dead a long time. You don't need to pray for my soul to be in peace, my soul was at peace when I was housed in my body and when I merge with the over soul, the universe, I am free and totally at peace. Share happy silly funny deep stories don't hold any- thing back. Find the cheapest way to dispose of my body and check my third drawer in the office I've already paid for my funeral! Peace be with you. By Paramjit Oberoi

  • Hopeful

    In terms of the sanctuary, most of us will go back home after an evening out and that will be a safe place, but for 1 in 4 women an 1 in 6 men, home is the least safe place they go back to. Re- lationship abuse can happen to anyone it doesn't discriminate Sadly, a young neighbour recently ended her life leaving 3 beautiful children. This was triggered by an unhealthy relationship. this is the impetus for this poem. It's dedicated to her. Hopeful. Deep breath, Chin up, Shoulders back, Chest proud Now silence that voice that speaks on repeat, saying, "you're not allowed " You're not allowed to leave... "Nah sis please don't be deceived" You're not allowed... "Nah sis pick up the car keys" Too bad to stay.too invested to leave... You're sucked in...latched on.. sayin to yourself "I need to stay for the sake of my daughter...or. I need to make it work for the sake of my son" You can't leave ...becomes you won't You won't leave... becomes you don't Meanwhile your reflection is becoming a stranger And Your thoughts and emotions signal red flag. emotional, mental, spiritual, even physical danger... By now the cost of being free, Feels so high that you abandon the idea of liberty, And continue to live in what feels like some form of domestic captivity By now it's not what THEY DO TO YOU that's affecting your health, ..It's...what... theyre ...keeping.. you from doing for yourself. Your thoughts, perspectives, beliefs are all tangled and mix up Your feet feel stuck .. You're Drowning in emotional bruises and scared by spiritual cuts Spinning your world off its axis ..and those seemingly irrelevant subtitles and nuisances. they...twist your internal organs, suck at your soul.. You may or may not have heard... of the term coercive control This sweet little one ... this daughter or this son. This precious gift of life who came through me.. How dare I destroy a birth right, and taint a beautiful legacy. Leaving isn't easy, there is no perfect exit.. You have to dig deep, to rebuild your life and fix it... It may take help from professionals, family, friends . ...and a well-made plan Deep breath, chin up...start your life over.... If I did, you can.. By Denise Amory-Reid
