NWHN endorses the Women’s March on Washington

The National Women’s Health Network supports the mission of the Women’s March, and is proud to join in this effort to send a bold message to the new government that women’s rights are human rights. We are inspired by the hundreds of thousands of supporters of women’s rights who have spontaneously engaged in the March. We applaud the organizers for taking into account the multiple ways in which women experience oppression and their recognition that all supporters of women’s rights need to consciously support women of color, LGBTQ folks, people with disabilities, immigrants, Muslims and other religious minorities who have been targeted for hateful rhetoric. We understand that rallying in Washington while the city is full of Trump supporters may expose marchers from these communities to abusive interactions. We pledge to support those who are targeted, and we encourage NWHN members to show up for the Women’s March, or related activities in their communities, wherever is best for them.
