–News from ENDANGERED BODIES NY. In March, 2011, The WTCI convened an international summit – Endangered Species: Preserving The Female Body. Out of that, the Endangered Bodies Campaign was launched- partnering with like-minded body positive organizations (now in 8 different countries) who are engaged in the the same fight to free women’s/girls’ bodies from commodification and objectification.
–For the last 30 years, The WTCI has offered a Speakout, a time honored traditional forum for women to find their individual voice and share experiences, allowing the personal story of each woman to be heard, dignified, and transformed by our coming together.
