This inactive project examined women's rights and continued indirectly through the Gender and Justice Project and the Battered Mother's Testimony Project.
As of October 1, 2003, the Women's Rights Network (WRN) is no longer running active projects. However, aspects of the work pioneered by WRN continue in exciting ways. Monica Ghosh Driggers, WRN's Policy Director, is developing a new initiative, the Gender and Justice Project, that will investigate the problems that arise when issues of gender clash with the justice system. She will also follow the developments that grow out of WRN's most recent initiative, the Battered Mother's Testimony Project.
In addition, the following publications and resources developed by WRN continue to be available through the Wellesley Centers for Women's publications office (781-283-2510):
- Human Rights Report: Battered Mothers Speak Out: A Human Rights Report on Domestic Violence and Child Custody in the Massachusetts Family Courts (Nov 2002)
