This SheDecides Day we celebrate five years of the movement that brings together international and national commitment and action, so that we progress towards a world where SheDecides.
#SheDecidesHerFuture is a celebration of our global community and all we have achieved together - different commitments to and political action on sexual and reproductive health and rights and bodily autonomy - highlighting the progress made to turn our shared vision into reality.
Global commitment connects the movement
Governments, civil society leaders and activists are champions committed to our shared vision of a world where women, girls and young people can decide about their bodies and lives, so that they can face challenges - of Covid, curbs on rights and climate change - and control their own future. From global platforms for commitment to gender equality, to national pledges of support for SRHR, and community organising to strategise and plan together, these commitments drive our action.
Political action drives us forwards
Our global collective voice is bold. We stand up for what is right and speak out loudly for the change we want to see. Our political movement brings together a diverse range of people who each have their own experiences of and perspectives on bodily autonomy.
With this global view, we connect and convene our global and national communities - for political action and advocacy on abortion rights, and all women and young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. We support and rally our peers - whether parliamentarians or community activists - with messages that spur others to action. We we raise our joint voices as leaders in spaces of power to push for change.
Progress so #SheDecidesHerFuture
We're going through tough times. The combined challenges of Covid-19, rise of conservative and regressive forces, de-prioritisation of financial support, curbs on activists' and women's rights, the shrinking civic and democratic space, and the unequal gendered impact of climate change where gender equality is already challenged, mean that progress on SRHR and bodily autonomy is hard won.
We celebrate each step forward and the amazing collective work behind them, as every one brings us closer to a world where #SheDecidesHerFuture.
