Meet The MANY Women
Led by a brain-trust of women of color, our grassroots membership group is comprised of NYC women from a variety of backgrounds.
Here's a surprise: not all of us are mothers.
Indeed most of us are, but many of us aren't. Some members are career educators, some are continuing ed students, artists, administrative assistants, managers, promising writers and more. Some are unemployed and looking for work. A number of us are married moms, and many more are single with children. Some of us are also grandmoms, God-moms, aunties, and sisters.
As categorically different as we may be, all of us are someone's daughter, raised to honor our backgrounds. At this most critical time, we're discussing the impact of racism and sexism with greater candor in inter-racial spaces and working diligently to elevate the moral authority of mothering and womanhood.
We call ourselves THE MANY, because we are.
We are a caring, multi-faceted, highly capable membership group of women who want to live in a safe and just society where women are respected and valued, where care and concern for humanity are upheld, and where we, and our children and families, can thrive.
Women's rights are human rights.
Unite in the fight. Join Us.
