FII Internship Program

Feminism In India (FII) is an award-winning digital intersectional feminist platform to learn, educate and develop a feminist sensibility and unravel the F-word among the youth in India. It aims to become a one-stop platform for everything related to feminism in India.

FII offers work-from-anywhere internship program to students and professionals alike. The internship program aims to develop and deepen one’s understanding of feminism while providing skill-based training on writing and communication, digital and social media, online publishing and advocacy and campaigning.

The nine-week program will be a relevant work experience for people looking for a career in the media and social sector or to just engage with feminism, gender, sexuality and other relevant topics. Interns only need a regularly functioning internet connection and a computer/laptop & smart phone and would be expected to commit 2-3 hours per day depending on the work tasks.

After successful completion of the internship, interns will receive a certificate of work experience and a letter of recommendation on request. Feedback will be a two-way process where the focus would be to improve the internship experience.

Note: We will take only six interns for two months. We might expand as the need be, in the later stages. FII is a feminist media organisation and we would be unable to pay the interns; however, we’ll make sure that the internship experience is enriching in feminist-centric research, journalism and communications. FII believes in equal opportunity and women from marginalized sections are encouraged to apply. 

Upcoming internship available from: 06 February 2017 – 07 April 2017

Last date to apply: 27 January 2017

Testimony From Previous Interns

Interning at FII was the most enriching experience ever. We had a great communication system, an app called Slack, through which all our duties, deadlines, notices, etc are communicated. The two month internship was more of a training program on the functioning of a website and its technicalities. This is a very useful and a convenient skill for the bloggers and the writers out there. One of the most positive aspects of the FII team is that they never refuse your article or decline your idea; in fact they help you out at every step to improve your article and publish it. You have full freedom and liberty to express yourselves and write anything about gender and sexuality. A lot of your thinking and understanding on feminism will change by the end of your internship period.

My two-month long internship at Feminism in India was a wonderfully enriching experience as it not only gave me the opportunity to improve and increase my knowledge of gender and sexual rights, but also put me in touch with some of the most pioneering names in the field. I was privileged to learn from and interact with successful, intelligent, brilliant women who are doing groundbreaking work to make this world a better place. I’m thankful to FII for this opportunity, and if you’re considering interning with them, then apply in a jiffy. You won’t regret it one bit.
