The Organization

EnGendeRights is a legal non-governmental organization that advances women's rights through domestic and international legal and policy advocacy, research and training, and impact litigation. 

The organization was founded to advocate for women’s right to sexual and reproductive self-determination free from discrimination, coercion, and violence including access to contraceptives, emergency contraceptives, and to safe and legal abortion, and equality of lesbians and bisexual women and their freedom from discrimination. 

It was founded in December 2003 by its Executive Director Ms. Clara Rita A. Padilla.
