For men in power — it’s all about control.
From the White House to recent Supreme Court confirmation hearings to attacks on women’s bodies and lives in state legislatures across the country, men in power are working overtime to control women’s bodies, lives, and futures.
We know that abortion access, freedom from sexual violence, and economic security are key to building a world where women can thrive. But far too many men in power downplay sexual violence, dismiss sexual assault, and erect barriers to abortion care to deny women autonomy.
Men in power want to control women, and keep us in “our place.” But we’re fighting back.
National Partnership for Women & Families and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence are joining together during Sexual Assault Awareness Month to speak out against the harmful laws, policies and culture that are trying to erode our bodily autonomy and our humanity. We’re standing together for women’s equality.
