This year, Feminists for Life of America celebrates 50 years of advocacy and education on behalf of women and children. That’s right: We are a year older than Roe v. Wade — and we could see the end of it in June, when the U.S. Supreme Court hands down a decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson case.
For our 50th Birthday celebration — and in hopes of celebrating many more birthdays of children to come — we honor our pro-life feminist foremothers by utilizing the suffrage colors with our corporate branding in purple, gold, and white.
The style of the numerals echo the loop in our beautiful logo, an interpretation of the women’s symbol. Some have interpreted it as a mother reaching out to a child, or a child reaching out to a mother. Eunice Kennedy Shriver once admired my FFL pin and called it “angelic.” That would be especially appropriate because, as feminists, we are heralds. But more than messengers of hope, we are also advocates, educators, and supporters of women through our helpsite, WomenDeserveBetter.com.
Finally, the “We” in Women Deserve Better® is underlined, because it’s all about us helping her.
In anticipation of our next magazine, we are searching for historic photos since Pat Goltz and Cathy Callaghan co-founded FFL in 1972, whether recent or older, from FFL events, speeches, rallies, conferences, etc. We also want to know how you found FFL, why you joined, what you have done to help change hearts and minds, how you helped those at highest risk, and any advocacy efforts you have supported.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy new year — and happy 50th Birthday to FFL!
Because women — and girls — deserve better
