Radical Women film screening

Let It Be Law (Que Sea Lay)

Red backgroun with a black filmstrip design showing one frame that is the title screen of the movie. 
Black lettering at the top says Radical women movie showing and at the bottom says Thursday, Oct. 20th, 7:00 pm

This powerful 90-minute film documents the massive organizing that occurred in Argentina predominantly by women as they challenged their government and church to pass free, legal, and safe abortion laws across the country. For seven years they persisted until abortion became a national right. Here in the USA we need to gather and organize the same energy to defend the right to abortion and full reproductive freedom. Discussion will follow the film.

Radical Women online meeting

Childcare workers rise up and organize!

Multiracial group of young picketers with red picket signs saying One job should be enough and  Immediately reinstate all workers unjustly fired for organizing

Hear a first-hand account from childcare workers Kailin Tintes and Charlie Morrison of the Magnolia Childcare Union. This union is organizing to represent MightyKidz childcare workers. Ten workers from the day care were recently fired in retaliation for organizing a union to achieve fair wages, adherence to state-regulated teacher/child ratios, and regularly scheduled lunch and 15- minute breaks. The sudden loss of their jobs resulted in financial hardship and loss of medical benefits. Find out how to help support this important struggle including the workers getting their jobs back. Also on the agenda: get involved in other upcoming Radical Women activities.

How overturning Roe v Wade
threatens LGBTQ+ rights

Crown with signs saying LOVE only knows Equality and LGBT Rights are Human Rights and NO BANS NO WALLS
The leaked draft decision from the conservative Supreme Court not only threatens reproductive freedom, but queer and trans rights as well. As states continue to pass anti-trans legislation, this decision would greenlight these reactionary measures and endanger hard won LGBTQ+ victories. Examine the continued rightward march of the nation’s highest court and how to fight back.

Reproductive Justice Teach-in

Why is controlling our bodies a threat to the system?

Two women in from of the Supreme Court building holding signs saying Never Again and my body my choice

The Supreme Court is getting ready to overturn the right to abortion and trans youth are under attack. Equality and bodily autonomy of women, non-binary and trans people are more threatened than ever despite generations of struggle. Why is abortion such a threat to the status quo? How does this intersect with sterilization policies aimed at BIPOC and disabled people? Learn about the role of the male-headed nuclear family as a foundation of the capitalist economy. Get an optimistic look at what it will take to create a new society with true equality. All genders are welcome.

Teach-in will be followed by activities to show the Supreme Court public support for Roe v. Wade.

Hear from two educators Davida Sharpe-Haygood, professor of education, and Bob Vegar, high school librarian, about what’s happening in local schools. Learn the connections to the attacks on Critical Race Theory, and hostility to LGBTQ folks and other marginalized communities.

Planning meeting

Help plan a local mobilization for reproductive justice

people with reproductive justice picket signs standing on a Seattle freeway overpass which has a banner saying Defend Abortion Rights

Get involved and work with Radical Women and other activists in a grassroots effort to defend abortion and all reproductive justice. The U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Mississippi case “Dobbs V Jackson Women’s Health Organization” will undoubtedly gut, if not destroy, abortion rights for most people. We want to put a stop to these attacks!

In 2021, Radical Women called for a National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice in response to these attacks. The intersectional demands, which are listed below, were democratically crafted by groups and activists in several cities and towns.

Locally, Radical Women has worked in coalition with others around these demands to defend reproductive freedoms. More pressure is needed. So, we are putting out this call for a “day of decision” action for when the Supreme Court rules on the Mississippi case which is expected in the summer. We also plan to organize activities and events leading up to the decision date.

The initial organizing meeting will be Wednesday, March 9 at 6:30pm via Zoom. Please register here:

Even in the Pacific Northwest, pregnant people in Central and Eastern Washington often have to travel as far as Seattle to get an abortion. In “liberal” Seattle, there are still issues of affordability. The destruction of Roe V. Wade will endanger reproductive rights in conservative regions and embolden Washington state’s patriarchal right, which already targets Planned Parenthood offices and other clinics.

Legal, free, and accessible abortion should be guaranteed for all, but it is a real survival issue for poor, women of color, and trans people. Together we can demonstrate public support for Roe V. Wade and pressure the U.S. Supreme Court. It will take feminists, working-class people, unionists, students and all defenders of human rights to make this happen.

Demands from the National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice:

• Protect & expand Roe v. Wade; safe, legal abortion on demand without apology
• Repeal the Hyde Amendment
• Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices
• Stop forced sterilization
• Not to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses
• End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare
• Defend queer and trans families
• Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare
• Sexual self-determination for people with disabilities
• Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions

If you are part of an organization or union, please encourage them to endorse this effort too. Endorsers will be listed for the local and national campaign. Endorsement form

Feel free to contact Radical Women at, 206-722-6057 with any questions.

Organizing meeting

Feminists mobilize for the needs of working women

Crowd of women with signs - Free 24-hour childcare Now - Keep Abortion Legal - Repeal the Hyde Amendment - Safe abortion on demand without apology

Why doesn’t the U.S. have publicly funded childcare? What can be done about it? Even before Covid, U.S. childcare was in crisis. In the past two years, many working moms have been forced to give up jobs and economic independence to take care of kids. Bring your thoughts and share your experiences at this Radical Women organizing meeting.

Also on the agenda: update on the groundbreaking Black History Month event, “Black Women Fire Up the Movement for Reproductive Justice.” Find out how to plug into local reproductive justice organizing.
