Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics), or FAB, is a network of feminists in bioethics, adding feminist perspectives to ethical issues in health care and the biosciences. It publishes a journal, the International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics and is affiliated with the International Association of Bioethics with which it meets.

FAB was formed in 1992 at the inaugural meeting of the IAB. Its aims are to create a more inclusive bioethical theory, from the viewpoint of disadvantaged groups, such as women. It critiques bioethical theory that privileges groups with power.
