We were thrilled to celebrate 10 years our work to conduct bold, rigorous research to improve women’s reproductive autonomy, choices, and health worldwide with our friends and colleagues on November 29, 2012.

Over the past decade, we have grown from a start-up in a church basement to an established and flourishing organization that conducts policy-relevant, advocacy-informing research around the world, and we couldn't have asked for more than an evening surrounded by friends who had supported us throughout our organizational history.

We would like to give a special thank you to our supporters and sponsors who allowed us to make our event a success, and whose support will enable us to continue to create bold solutions driven by women's priorities over the next 10 years.

In addition to celebrating our work, we were pleased to honor Marlene Gerber Fried and Jessica Valenti with the Ibis Reproductive Health Evidence in Activism Award for their work to advance reproductive justice and women's rights. Marlene and Jessica have created awareness, advanced conversation, and significantly contributed to the field of reproductive health and rights, and we were thrilled to be able to honor their accomplishments.
