NJHN March Program - More to Do: The Road to Equality for Women in the U.S.

Speakers:

* Deborah Jacobs, Vice President, Advocacy & Policy, Ms. Foundation for Women

* Debbie Johnson, M.D., women's health care provider

* Jennifer Vriens, M.C., CFRE, Director of Development & Marketing, YWCA of Eastern Union County

A woman born in the United States 40 years ago inhabits a very different world than her mother or grandmother did. What kind of world can a girl born in 2013 expect to see 40 years from now?

Deborah Jacobs will discuss the Ms. Foundation for Women's 2013 report which focuses on the areas of economic justice, reproductive justice and safety, and suggest policy recommendations that address the root causes of inequality.

Dr. Debbie Johnson will discuss reproductive choice challenges women face today, with an emphasis on religiously-based obstacles.

Jennifer Vriens will discuss varying state regulations and the role of abortion funds in reproductive justice.

Come at 1:30 pm for snacks and to socialize. The program will start at 1:45 pm. After the meeting, everyone is welcome to join us for an early dinner at Stage House Tavern (right around the corner from the library).

    I learned new things about issues I thought I was thoroughly familiar with. And those things made me angry and more committed to working for women's equality and reproductive rights.
