Our Issues

Violence Against Women

JWI is at the forefront advocating for a comprehensive response to domestic and sexual violence, which affects women in all communities throughout the U.S. and worldwide. We are a vocal partner in U.S. and international efforts to address the epidemic of gender-based violence.

Women's Health

JWI has worked for decades to ensure that women have access to quality, comprehensive reproductive health services, from abortion services to contraception to family planning, which strengthens the health of women and families. 

Economic Security

Women of all ages face serious challenges to their economic stability, from student loan debt to pay discrimination to threats to Social Security. JWI advocates for legislation that addresses equal pay and workplace policies, and works to lift women out of poverty.
