Redwood Women's Foundation is a rural laboratory for women's empowerment. Our mission is to cultivate a safe, productive sustainable space for women, rooted in positive words, consistency, and actions. Our long-term goal is to procure a safe, holistic, and productive land-space for networking, educational seminars, workshops, retreats, community projects, events, fundraising, and sustainable agriculture. In May 2015, we began hosting monthly empowerment workshops presented by some of the most amazing women in our community. Working collectively with diverse groups of women creates solidarity among the group, enhances our individual and collective capabilities, and allows us to eliminate socio-economic barriers between women in our community by exploring new ways to work together more effectively. Redwood Women's Foundation creates an opportunity for ALL women to participate at their own capacity. In addition to our workshops, RWF provides resource/referral and advocacy to women who wish to improve their lives and the lives of other women in our community. 

A framework description of Women’s Empowerment:

1. A woman's sense of self-worth; 
2. The right to have and to determine choices;
3. Access to opportunities and resources; 
4. The independence to control personal and professional affairs.
5. The ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, locally, nationally and internationally. http://www.un.org/popin/unfpa/taskforce/guide/iatfwemp.gdl.html
