This event, hosted by Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, the United Nations Population Fund, and the Government of Canada, highlights the critical role of feminist movements in advancing bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in Canada and globally.
From the right to access sexual and reproductive health services, to decisions around if or when to have children, to ending gender-based violence, feminist movements are leading the charge to protect and advance the rights of women and 2SLGTBQIA+ people.
As governments and civil society unite around Beijing+25 and the Generation Equality Forum, this event will bring together both global and domestic perspectives on how we can move the needle and realize the right to bodily autonomy for all.
