The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Women’s Committee supports widely available and affordable healthcare options for women, especially those resources that provide services to economically and socially disadvantaged women. In the United States, the recent campaign by some legislators against the funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America was an unfortunate target used to promote a political agenda.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America provides healthcare, education, screening and advocacy on public health issues relevant to all. As union members who are also women, we must advocate for the health and well-being of all women.
The IATSE Women’s Committee was established in June 2015 and is working to promote networking and mentorship opportunities and to create visibility of IATSE women in community and union activities. Please email IATSEWomen@iatse.net if you are interested in learning more.
