"I've always believed that we could change the world if we start listening to one another again. We must use our voices to achieve equality for all women, today and every day."

— Bella Abzug, a leader of the women's movement who worked to promote Women’s Equality Day

With annual commemorations of Women's Equality Day, the Women's Action Coalition of the Fox Valley celebrates our past achievements while reaffirming our commitment to the pursuit of equality for all women.


Our Coalition was made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.

Who We Are

The Women’s Action Coalition of the Fox Valley is a collective of passionate women, united in the spirit of the suffragists, and committed to promoting equality for all women. Born from the unity of various women's groups during the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we continue to work tirelessly towards equal rights and opportunities.

Our Coalition was made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.

Our Mission

Our mission is to champion women's rights, advocate for equality, and empower women to be active participants in shaping our society. We strive to uplift the voices of women, ensure fair representation, and drive social and political change.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see a world where all women enjoy equal rights, opportunities, and recognition, free from gender-based discrimination. We envisage a future where every woman can live her truth without fear of prejudice or marginalization.

What We Do

We leverage our collective voice to influence change, initiate dialogue, and promote policies that champion women's equality. Through awareness campaigns, community events, and strategic partnerships, we work relentlessly to change attitudes and laws that perpetuate inequality.

Why this Initiative is Important

Gender equality is not just a women's issue; it is a human rights issue. By promoting women's rights, we are fostering a society that values respect, fairness, and diversity. Together, we can work to break down the barriers to equality and ensure that every woman's voice is heard.


Stay engaged with our events that promote discussion, awareness, and action towards gender equality. From seminars to workshops and rallies, our events are a platform for collective action and learning.

Outreach Opportunities

Join our mission. Whether you're an individual passionate about women's rights or an organization that can help our cause, we welcome you. From volunteering to sponsorship opportunities, there are myriad ways to make a difference.
