Since its establishment in 1987, Women’s History Month has been celebrated to honor achievements that women have contributed to American popular culture, politics, art, and other aspects of American history. In the second chapter of our yearlong reproductive justice campaign, the Reproductive Health Access Project is excited to highlight visible women who are change-makers and unsung heroes . You’ll get to learn more about inspiring women, from Rosa Parks — beyond the scope of her refusal to give up her seat on the bus– to Loretta J. Ross, co-founder of SisterSong and one of the first people to coin the term reproductive justice. We will continue posting on social media and updating our blog weekly, so stay tuned!
The profiles we are sharing as part of this campaign will be turned into a book, titled “A Common Thread: Weaving reproductive health, rights, and justice.” If you would like a copy, become a recurring, sustaining donor of $25 or more today!
