 Our 40th Anniversary Benefit Celebration was a huge success!

Thank you to our very special presenters CA Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, CA Senator Holly Mitchell, and guest CA Assemblymember Cheryl Brown. Thank you also to the attendees and volunteers. It was an inspirational evening of looking back on 40 years of empowering women to make their own choices about their own bodies, families, and reproductive lives, as well as looking to the future to keep fighting for all those in our community who are suffering barriers to reproductive health access.

Our Mission
We have a vision: A world where women control their own bodies, reproduction and sexuality. The Feminist Women's Health Center / Women's Health Specialists is dedicated to providing women-controlled health care and advocating for all options for all women. Only with dignity and freedom of choice can women achieve their full potential.
Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Women's Health Specialists is to promote positive images of women and provide our clients with a new perspective of their bodies and health. We give women the tools to evaluate their authentic health care needs - images of women not based on a societal myth, but based on women's reality and experience. We provide women with health information so they can become knowledgeable about their normal life stages. Our goal is to empower women through support, education, self-help and services so that they can make the best health care decisions for themselves.
