About International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (FAB)

FAB is the International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics – a worldwide organization dedicated to furthering feminist bioethics. Feminist bioethicists engage with issues in health care and the biosciences from feminist viewpoints.

FAB is dedicated to the interests of women as patients, citizens, parents, practitioners and carers. We seek equity for women in all of their roles. We promote diversity and oppose all forms of oppression.

Our main activities are the International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (IJFAB) and a biennial world congress.
