The Voice of Advocacy for Women in Westchester

Our Focus

Striving For Solutions Together

The WWA seeks equal rights and economic equality for women, champions reproductive freedom and access to healthcare, works to end violence against women, supports civil rights for all, and opposes racism and bigotry based on race or sexual orientation. 

We recognize that affordable housing, healthcare, and childcare are essential to women, especially low-income residents, who are often the most vulnerable members of our communities. Women who are victims of sexual assault and domestic violence require protections and services to assure their safety and ability to live freely. Women who are members of ethnic minorities should live in communities that are welcoming and provide equal access to opportunities available to others.

Our Focus is on Driving Change
