Raising Women’s Voices

A Woman’s Vision for Quality, Affordable Health Care for All

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on July 3, 2008

We support quality,affordable health care for all-and we are working to raise women’s voices for the health care we need. Our goal is to engage a broad array of women’s health and reproductive justice advocates in local,state and national health reform discussions. We want to ensure that women’s concerns will be addressed and the health care we get will truly be health care for all.

Women have much at stake in the debates over health care. The U.S. health care system has consistently failed to provide needed care for many women. It has also created tremendous challenges for the women who coordinate health care for their families, as well as for the many women who comprise the majority of health care workers in the U.S.

Raising Women’s Voices and our community partners have talked with women about their experiences with the health care system and, based on those experiences, what changes they would like to see. Their thoughtful answers have informed the principles of our vision for health care.

“It’s time to rev up the women’s health movement again. Health care for all is our issue. We’re the ones who have to make it happen.”~Byllye Avery, founder, Black Women’s Health Imperative
