Gender Justice & Healing
NewMexicoWomen.Org’s current focus is Gender Justice & Healing. Gender Justice is a commitment to end patriarchy and create a world free from misogyny. We believe real gender justice cannot be achieved without reproductive, social, economic, and environmental justice. A gender justice framework is intersectional. It encompasses various social, economic, and environmental justice issues, with a specific and explicit gender and reproductive lens. It allows our feminism to be more inclusive of lived experiences of race, class, immigration, and gender. Further, a gender justice analysis also acknowledges that men and gender non-conforming individuals are constrained by patriarchal gender roles and norms. Healing is the process of restoring health from an unbalanced or unhealthy state. Real gender justice cannot be achieved without deeper healing, and healing cannot occur without real and lasting justice.
