Our original philosophy was to share information to give women control over their gynecological health, demystify and de-medicalize women's body functions as normal and provide true reproductive choices for all women. This has remained the guiding principle of the Feminist Women's Health Center/Women's Health Specialists. In addition to delivering services, we train people in and out of the medical profession. Women are trained to work in our clinic as health educators, doctors are trained in safe abortion techniques and nurses are trained to be non-judgmental practitioners in their approach to health care delivery.
The BEST GYM THUS FAR in the heart of the city! Women’s fitness of Boston gives the atmosphere of a spa with the comfort of your local family owned business. Julie the owner is amazing and actually teaches a phenomenal boot camp class. The staff are friendly and helpful! The gym is spotless and I love that there is a security guard at the entrance because it is downtown and Women’s fitness of Boston is a all women’s gym. Do not look any further this is the gym for you ladies!! I have been a member at WOW downtown, BSC downtown but both fell very short! I finally feel at home and comfortable in a gym where I can achieve all of my workout results!
The Feminist Women's Health Center is a living symbol of women's freedom and self-determination. We continue to advocate, promote and protect reproductive rights for all women. Our philosophy of sharing information to give women control over their gynecological health and reproductive choices, and our absolute belief that women have the right to choose when, if, and under what circumstances they will have children, sets us apart from other abortion and women's health providers.
With help, training and inspiration from the Oakland Feminist Women's Health Center, nine women formed a self-help group that grew into the Chico Feminist Women's Health Center (CFWHC), a private, non-profit woman-controlled clinic. The clinic was opened with no government or foundation funding and few resources. Motivated by their need, desire and drive to bring women-controlled reproductive health care to their community, the Health Center was started in less than a year. The group of field workers, waitresses, mothers and students pooled their income to pay women in the group to start answering phones. We were laywomen, running clinics and providing the kind of health care we wanted to receive.
They opened the first Feminist Women's Health Center in Los Angeles, California. They offered self-help groups for the community. The act of taking the speculum into our own hands prompted a raid of the first health center. The Los Angeles police raided the self-help clinic and Carol Downer was charged with practicing medicine without a license. A jury acquitted her.
