Women's Rights

The Women’s Human Rights and Gender Equity Program prioritizes eradicating violence against Black women, girls, and LGBTQ people and working towards reproductive, racial, and economic justice by contributing relevant community based research, workshops, Op-eds, and public health policy recommendations that are guided by feminism and the human rights framework.

In partnership with the Women’s Research and Resource Center at Spelman College we host our Reproductive Justice Institute(RJI) at the annual Toni Cade Bambara Scholar Activism Conference, which is open to the public and takes place in late March.

In the tradition of Toni Cade Bambara’s scholarship, Women Engaged is dedicated to crafting innovative reproductive justice trainings to revolutionize how community members approach the issues and provide the tools necessary to actualize change in their communities for the issues that matter most to them. If you are interested in having one of our staff members provide a training to you, your community, or organization please fill out the form on the Contact Us tab and one of our team members will contact you to discuss further.

National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. First observed in 2012, it has quickly gained momentum ever since. Nearly 4.5 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday to date. Celebrated on the fourth Tuesday of September, National Voter Registration Day will next take place on September 28, 2021 when volunteers and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” in a single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts. National Voter Registration Day seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.
