Review for Feminist Womens Health Center Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was working in the field in Atlanta when Feminist Women's Health Center first opened and I have been connected with it in several capacities ever since. I have volunteered as a clinic escort, and pro bono counselor. For ten years I was a staff member and for the last five years I have been an adviser. I was a client and donor through out the years.
The medical care I received has always been on the forefront of medical thought. Feminists have consistently provided services to groups who were turned away by others. Starting with self help menstrual extraction courses open to women before Roe V Wade. Creating the first donor insemination program, thirty year ago, for all women at a time when other programs were only open to married women. They brought the Abortion pill and cervical caps to the US and campaigned to have the morning after pill sold over the counter. Continuing on to one of the first programs for trans that included a full array of services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have learned so much from my association including how much more I am capable of than I knew. The people I have met through my association with FWHC are remarkable. They are talented in many spheres and live their lives with passion and compassion. Many with remarkable courage who have spoken truth to power and others with political power or media influence that dedicate themselves to human rights and dignity for all.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
