 "Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons."

- Malala Yousafzai

As an organization focusing on reproductive health - through healthcare, sexuality education, and advocacy - we felt it was important to develop additional ways to engage our community of supporters in conversation. We hope this forum will provide each of you with an opportunity to stay engaged with PPGMR and feminism in an atmosphere where feminists of all types can learn, share, and grow together.
