Kayla and Jenna Spagnoli

Kayla and Jenna Spagnoli are local community builders, who are more formally known as The Feminist Twins. The Feminist Twins work to share resources, information, and promote community collaboration. At first, the twins did this work virtually all through social media, and with support of their community, they were able to pivot to creating in-person events and welcoming spaces for BIPOC, 2SLGBTQ+ peoples, the Indigenous community, and other marginalized groups in our region.  

You likely know the Feminist Twins from some of their accessible and progressive events like the annual Feminist Fairs, their Non-Heteronormative Valentine’s Craft Nights, Card or Poster-making nights with local advocacy groups like the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women (OCTEVAW) and the Ottawa Women’s March, or any one of their sober dance parties or networking workshops. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jenna and Kayla collaborated with their community to create the Pride, Not Prejudice Fair—a reoccurring virtual craft and community fair for the socially conscious.
