Pro-Woman, Pro-Child, Pro-Family, Pro-Choice!
Feminists For Choice is a collective of women’s rights advocates that was founded in the Spring of 2009. The name is a very deliberate statement that feminism is inherently linked to the right a woman has to control her own body.
What is Feminism?
“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.” ~Paula Treichler
“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.” ~Rebecca West
“Feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.” ~bell hooks
What is Choice?
The pro-choice movement supports a woman’s right to control her own body. “Because once a woman has the ability to determine her reproductive destiny, she can aspire to control her destiny in every other area as well. Reproductive self-determination is the most fundamental civil and human right a woman can have. It’s the key to enjoying full equality, liberty, and justice. And that’s the very right that the right-wing extremists are fighting so hard to take away.
We must speak out about what is happening, and protest the fact that our country is being hijacked by the far right. This is not a partisan matter; it is a human matter that touches all of our lives.” ~Gloria Feldt, former president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America
