At publication, Morgan brought together many of these women for a strategy meeting, out of which was born The Sisterhood is Global Institute, the first international feminist think-tank “pledged to visionary yet pragmatic action in support of women’s rights, freedoms, and power.” Among its many activities in the following years, the Institute pioneered the first Urgent Acton Alerts regarding women’s rights; the first Global Campaign To Make Visible Women’s Unpaid Labor In National Accounts; and the first Women’s Rights Manuals For Muslim Societies (in 12 languages).
