Washington, D.C., February 14, 2020 — Today is National Women’s History Month.
As we mark the occasion, we ask what to expect as we celebrate the women and girls who have stood up for women’s rights and equality and who have also fought to advance women’s equality and justice across our country.
As women, we have a long history of fighting to ensure that every woman has the right to make her own health care decisions and that every child has a good education, that no one is denied access to safe, quality childcare, and that all Americans are treated with dignity and respect.
The march will also celebrate our women, and in particular our sisters and mothers, who have given so much of themselves to ensure our nation can continue to advance.
We must also celebrate the courage and sacrifice of our young women who have gone before us to continue the fight for justice, equality, and equity.
This march has inspired many, and the march itself will have a profound effect on our country and the world.
The Women’s Equality March is a worldwide movement that aims to ensure all women have the right and opportunity to make their own health and reproductive health decisions and to make the most of the health care choices that are available to them.
This March is particularly significant because of the significant impact the March has had on women’s lives and health and on our health care system.
This year, the National Women March has attracted tens of millions of people, including millions of women and children.
The United States, like many other countries around the world, has been struggling with the impact of the opioid epidemic.
The opioid crisis has killed more than 14,000 Americans this year alone.
In many ways, this is a devastating situation.
But it is also an opportunity for all women to come together to celebrate women and the health of their families.
We are reminded of this everyday.
Our goal is to ensure every woman, and every child, is given the health services they need to live healthy, productive lives.
To ensure that no woman, or child, faces an unjustified health bill, we will be calling on all members of Congress to support legislation to help women and families afford the health insurance that is available to women and to help ensure access to care for all.
We also will be announcing additional actions and resources to support the march in Washington, including: •The National Women on Capitol Hill will lead the Women on the Hill coalition that will convene women, doctors, medical professionals, and community members to support women and their families during this historic time of reckoning.
•We will be partnering with the Women and Families United for Women (WIFEW) organization to ensure access for people in crisis, as well as providing education, support, and resources for women and people of color, especially the undocumented and homeless.
•WIFW will host a Women on Healthcare conference for all the states, communities, and organizations participating in the march to help promote access to affordable health care.
We will also be hosting a Women and Allies Network to help mobilize and educate women and allies on how to join the march and to work with the White House, Congressional Black Caucus, and other leaders in the fight to end gender pay equity.
The national March will also include a national prayer vigil, which will feature speeches from civil rights leaders, as will a prayer breakfast from local churches, community groups, and faith-based organizations, as part of a nationwide Women’s Day of Prayer event on Friday, February 18.
And we are partnering with local and state governments and organizations to help prepare communities for the day of the march.

Women of color are one of the fastest-growing demographic groups in the U.S., according to the National Coalition of Black Women, with one in five U.s. adults now of color.
For women of color living in the District of Columbia, the number is one in six, according to data from the United States Census Bureau.
While it is clear that women of colour continue to face significant barriers in access to health care and other services, the recent increase in the number of Black and Hispanic women reporting they are uninsured or underinsured is a clear sign of progress, according the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The Washington, DC-based National Action Network, a coalition of national civil rights and women’s organizations, recently released data showing that Black women are three times more likely than white women to have experienced a health insurance-related incident in the past year.
We look forward to continuing to work alongside our allies in Washington and across the country to ensure Black women and women of Color have access to quality health care while we celebrate this milestone in history.
