Our History Founded in 1975
We started as outsiders protesting at the FDA. Today, we are a respected watchdog organization that changes the way the medical establishment listens to women.
We improve the health of all women by developing and promoting a critical analysis of health issues in order to affect policy and support consumer decision-making.
We aspire to a just health system that reflects the needs of all women.
A Trusted Voice for Women
To safeguard our independence as a trusted voice on women's health, the NWHN chooses not to accept financial support from the pharmaceutical industry, medical device manufacturers, or insurance companies.
You touched my heart and reminded me why I donated to the NWHN long ago. It was a pamphlet in a community college library. It explained about breast lumps and most were benign. That gave me confidence & I never forgot to donate since then.
