The International Mothers and Mothering Network (formerly IMN)

The International Mothers Network (IMN) has been renamed The International Mothers and Mothering Network (IMMN).

The International Mothers and Mothering Network is a global consortium of over 80 motherhood organizations.

IMMN's focus, in particular, is on progressive mothers groups - mothers from the global south, mothers in poverty, mothers who are activists, mothers with disabilities, welfare mothers, grandmother caregivers and others, who are vested in feminist perspectives on maternal well-being, health; including but not limited to, safety, freedom of expression, equal rights, benefits for families and caregivers and support for organizations that encourage a platform for continued pragmatic change-work.
