Site offers fact sheets, reports, articles, and news on topics such as the world’s abortion laws, Roe v. Wade, the Fundamentalist crusade against abortion, and so-called “partial-birth abortion.”
Feminist Majority Foundation (www.feminist.org) The Foundation’s mission is to create innovative, cutting-edge research, educational programs, and strategies to further women’s equality and empowerment, to reduce violence toward women, to increase the health and economic well-being of women, and to eliminate discrimination of all kinds.
Lady Parts Justice (www.ladypjustice.com) is the first not safe for work, rapid response reproductive rights messaging hub that uses comedy, culture and digital media to sound an alarm about the terrifying erosion of reproductive access so people will get off their asses and reclaim their rights. Our name is an homage to Lisa Brown, a former Michigan state rep who when in office was banned from the statehouse floor for using the word vagina when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill. When she asked what she SHOULD say they suggested something less provocative like “lady parts.” The offensive nature of men uncomfortable with the word vagina, but perfectly comfortable legislating it, inspired us to use it as our name.
Medical Students for Choice (MSFC) (www.ms4c.org) was founded in 1993 by students concerned about the shortage of doctors trained to provide abortion care, the lack of abortion education in medical schools, and escalating violence against abortion providers. The organization represents students at more than 100 medical schools across the United States and Canada.
National Organization for Women (www.now.org) is the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States. NOW’s goal is “to take action” to bring about equality for all women.
