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.

We put Women's Health in Women's Hands

I didn't expect to write to you today, but when I heard the results of a new study that was published on-line just last night, I knew that you would want to know what the Network thinks. According to this study, menopause hormone therapy (HT) does not stop hardening of the arteries, an important cause of heart disease, even if women begin taking hormones as soon as they go through menopause.

More than 99 percent of women use birth control at some point in their lives, and more than half of all pregnancies are unintended. For many women, their first entry into the health care system is to obtain contraception.
