WORD (Women Organized to Resist and Defend)

is a new grassroots, feminist organization that is dedicated to building the struggle for women’s rights and equality for all.

We will defend the gains of the women’s movement and we will push for greater justice for all women. We will fight for social programs that poor women and families depend on, we will fight for economic equality, and for an end to sexist discrimination.

"Since the Europeans came here, Native women have lost their historic positions under the matriarchy as leaders and decision makers, all due to the brutal and genocidal influx of the European colonial ideas of patriarchy and racism.  Still today, Native women suffer disproportionately from alcoholism, drug abuse, and sexual and domestic violence. That is why the struggle for women’s rights must include the fight against colonialism, racism and imperialism. All of us need to unite to fight back and win."
