Women's charities, federations, or other groups I can donate to that will actually accomplish things with the money I send?

I'm looking for mostly women's charities that make real differences in people's lives, especially long term. So, not so much "Here's some food" but "here's a step up or a way to help yourself", etc.
Also, I'm aiming more towards the liberal non-religious side of things, since I do support choice (any choice, baby or not), as well as birth control, sex education, etc. I would say these things are very, very important to me.
For example, Planned Parenthood is my first choice so far.
Other charities, of a non-female angle, would also be appreciated. However, as much as I love animals, and as much as I know children are important, I'm not interested in donating to either of those groups specifically. My interest in helping children is through helping their mothers (and fathers) first...
