Feminism n. the policy, practice or advocacy of political, economic, and social equality for women.


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.


  • FMF promotes equality between women and men and girls and boys, and supports constitutional and statutory measures to gain full equality locally, statewide, nationally, and globally.
  • FMF supports safe, legal and accessible abortion, contraception, and family planning, including Medicaid funding and access for minors.
  • FMF is dedicated to achieving civil rights for all people, including affirmative action programs for women and people of color.
  • FMF supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
  • FMF does not permit discrimination on the basis of sex, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, age, marital status, national origin, or disability.
  • FMF promotes non-violence and works to eliminate violence against women.
  • 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.
