Feminist Website

The website I have chosen is the website for the Feminist Majority foundation, a foundation which is dedicated to women's equality, reproductive health and non violenceIn all spheres, FMF utilises research and action to empower women economically, socially, and politically. The organisation believes that feminists - both women and men, girls and boys - are the majority, but this majority must be empowered.
Led by FMF President Eleanor Smeal, the research and action programs focus on advancing the legal, social and political equality of women with men, countering the backlash to women's advancement, and recruiting and training young feminists to encourage future leadership for the feminist movement in the United States.
To carry out these aims, FMF engages in research and public policy development, public education programs, grassroots organising projects, leadership training and development programs, and participates in and organises forums on issues of women's equality and empowerment. The sister organisation, the Feminist Majority, engages in lobbying and other direct political action, pursuing equality between women and men through legislative avenues. There are also many events which the FMF engages in, for example they have an events calendar which shows events such as museum events dedicated to the women's arts. Every year the FMF society organises events such as the global woman's rights awards or the woman of colour conference. They also work towards the right for woman to have abortions in more poorer and less economically developed towns. They also work towards the issue of birth control and education.
