The New Hampshire Women’s Initiative Announces Merger

The New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Women, the Women’s Lobby and Alliance, and the Women’s Policy Institute are pleased to announce that they are merging together to form: The New Hampshire Women’s Initiative, a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Our mission is to advance social, economic and political opportunity and equality for women in New Hampshire.

Over the years, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Women’s Lobby and Alliance, and the Women’s Policy Institute have worked independently but in tandem to accomplish many goals on behalf of the women of New Hampshire. Now, change, progress, and time have combined to create a critical juncture in the status of women in our society and economy. In order to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity, we have decided to merge these three separate organizations into the unified New Hampshire Women’s Initiative. Together, we are more than merely the sum of our parts. We are a stronger voice for Granite State women, and a new iteration of the women’s movement.

Each of the unique strengths and talents of these separate organizations will be leveraged within the new Women’s Initiative. With research, advocacy, and outreach as key program areas, the Women’s Initiative will be stronger, streamlined, and more effective. Together, we will be able to have a more comprehensive impact on the institutional and societal obstacles that continue to face New Hampshire’s women, as well as advancing opportunities and celebrating the accomplishments of women and girls throughout the state.
