Collective action for bodily autonomy
SheDecides is a global political movement fighting for a world where every woman, girl and young person - in all their diversity - can decide what to do with their body, life and future. Since 2017, we have been standing up for her right to choose.
Our members include governments, civil society organizations, youth leaders, parliamentarians, activists, service providers, researchers, media, artists and donors. We bring together leaders in bodily autonomy from Africa, Asia, the Arab Region, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and North America.
We unite to take collective action and to speak out for bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all. This means that women, girls and young people in all their diversity:
- have access to information about their bodies and rights
- have the agency to act on those rights to make decisions
- and have access to the services that support those decisions
Champions are SheDecides ambassadors who commit to advancing SheDecides objectives by taking action. They shape and inform SheDecides’ areas for collaboration and are the leading voices for SheDecides messaging.
