Thanks to the over 300 people who attended our Mother's Day event "Remembering our Foremothers in Gynecology: The Hidden Contributions of Anarcha, Betsey and Lucy" at Wellesley College. The event featured words, song, dance and art. The occasion called attention to the reproductive health disparities facing black women in the US - and how Dr Sims' medical malfeasance fits into a persistent pattern that continues to this day.


Our Mission

a window into women’s health and wellness

The Resilient Sisterhood Project’s mission is to educate and empower women of African descent regarding common but rarely discussed diseases of the reproductive system that disproportionately affect them. We approach these diseases and associated issues through a cultural and social justice lens, because we believe that poor knowledge of reproductive health is primarily related to health, racial, and socioeconomic disparities.


What We Do

We mobilize black women and immigrant women of African descent to challenge existing medical/social inequities and advocate for health improvements regarding the chronic under-diagnosed and under-treated diseases of the reproductive system that disproportionally affect us.
