Disparities

NWLC Media Toolkit

The fight for progressive health care reform is currently at a crossroads of major consequence at both the state and national levels, and addressing the barriers to women's health care access is more important than ever before. In order to ensure that women are active and vocal advocates in this fight, the National Women's Law Center has launched Reform Matters: Making Real Progress for Women and Health Care.

NWLC's efforts include: a Reform Matters Toolkit, a Reform Matters Conference Call Series, technical and informational assistance, the National Women and Health Care Coalition, and Health Care for America Now. http://nwlc.org/reformmatters/about.html September, 2009
