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.
