New Feminist Alliance Pushes “Woke” Politics, Pressures U.S. to Fund Abortion

Three international pro-abortion organizations have merged in a new feminist alliance, rebranding their image to align with ascendant “woke” racial politics and setting their target firmly on influencing U.S. policy.

The three organizations joining together are International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPFWHR), the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), and the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC). All three have worked to advance “sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR),” including an international right to abortion, as well as controversial social issues like LGBTQ rights and “comprehensive sexuality education” around the world.

Central to this rebranding effort is a reframing of their work in light of the racial politics of the moment, emphasizing racial and sexual minority groups in line with “intersectional feminist principles.” This move makes strategic sense for multiple reasons.

The U.S. under President Joe Biden has leaned heavily into promoting “woke” racial and sexual foreign policies, and despite Biden’s reticence to speak directly of abortion, his administration has worked to remove barriers to funding abortion-promoting groups, often in the name of gender and racial equity.
