Our Cause

Fòs Feminista is an intersectional feminist organization centered around the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women, girls, and gender-diverse people. Together with local partners across the globe, we engage in healthcare, education, and advocacy to advance our agenda. This includes providing sexual and reproductive health services and implementing community-based strategies that make sexual and reproductive healthcare more accessible to the most marginalized women and girls. We also engage young people with comprehensive sexuality education and provide care to survivors of gender-based violence. We stand alongside our partners in the streets, in the courts, and in other advocacy spaces as an unapologetically feminist voice, resisting injustice and advocating for gender equality and reproductive rights locally and globally.

Fòs Feminista carries forward the work and partnerships of the three organizations – IPPFWHR, IWHC, and CHANGE – that formed a feminist alliance in June 2021 with a vision to advance sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice through an intersectional feminist lens and a commitment to the leadership from the Global South.

Fòs means “strength” in Haitian Creole and stands for the positive energy of resilience, dynamism, and drive to challenge all forms of oppression. Feminista means “feminist” in several languages and underscores our focus on women, girls, and gender-diverse people and our commitment to gender and reproductive justice.

As Fòs Feminista, we aspire to co-create a feminist future where all women, girls, and gender-diverse people have the support, information, and services they need to make their own choices about their bodies, their sexuality, and their lives.

Fòs Feminista is the new name of the organization formerly known as International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPFWHR), which separated from the global International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in 2020 and is not affiliated with IPPF or the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
