New Business Item 56 (2019)Adopted as Amended
Through existing media channels, the NEA will honor the leadership of women, non-binary, and trans people, and other survivors who have come forward to publicly name their rapists and attackers in the growing, international, #MeToo movement.
Furthermore, the NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person's right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people. The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade.
The most misogynistic forces, under Trump, want to abolish the gains of the women's right movement. Women's leadership is essential for any successful egalitarian movement and therefore must be protected.
