The Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) was created to develop bold, new strategies and programs to advance women’s equality, non-violence, economic development, and, most importantly, empowerment of women and girls in all sectors of society. All programs of the FMF endeavor to include a global perspective and activities to promote leadership development, especially among young women. Along with reproductive rights and access to reproductive technology, the FMF’s programs have focused on the empowerment of women in law, business, medicine, academia, sports, and the Internet. Its sister organization, the Feminist Majority (formerly Fund for the Feminist Majority), has focused on empowering women in public policy-making as well as gender balance in elective and appointive offices.
The principles of the FMF are the following:
The FMF promotes equality between women and men, girls and boys and supports constitutional and statutory measures to gain full equality locally, statewide, nationally, and globally.
The FMF supports safe, legal and accessible abortion, contraception, and family planning, including Medicaid funding and access for minors.
The FMF is dedicated to achieving civil rights for all people, including affirmative action programs for women and people of color.
The FMF supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.
The FMF does not permit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, age, marital status, national origin, size, or disability.
The FMF promotes non-violence and works to eliminate violence against women.
The FMF encourages programs directed at the preservation of the environment, clean air and water, the elimination of smog, toxic and hazardous waste, chemical and nuclear weaponry.
The FMF supports workers’ collective bargaining, pay equity, and the end of sweatshops.
