The MFPF is a non-governmental organization that has departmental associations organized in 20 regional federations and a national confederation.
This means that even in groups of two or three people, MFPF has a presence even in small, fairly traditional towns, where we are able to raise awareness in different sectors of society, including workers, students and teachers, through seminars and talks.
We are developing a significant strategy of sexual education, which will be a priority issue among the activities being organized in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the MFPF, which will be commemorated in March 2006 with a congress and the publication of a book that will share our story and women's struggles for their rights, for the right to contraception, a fundamental revolution of the 20th century.
In 1973 the Movement for the Liberation of Abortion and Contraception was created, an umbrella organisation including the MFPF, student organisations as well as representatives of the Socialist Party and other left-wing groups.
