What is the SheDecides Movement
Do you want a world where every girl and woman can decide what to do with her body, with her life and with her future?
The movement brings together government ministers, parliamentarians, civil society organisations, service providers, donors, media, researchers, young people and activists to take political action and speak out for bodily autonomy and the right for all women, girls and young people to decide about their bodies, lives and future.
We come together to take collective action and to Stand Up and Speak Out for bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights. This means that all 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.
We are committed to a world where SheDecides. Without question.
Working together, we advance the fundamental right of girls and women everywhere to enjoy their bodies, to make their own choices, to have access to comprehensive sexuality education and the full range of quality care that unite all parts of her sexual and reproductive life and health.
We see a world where every girl and woman can exercise her right to privacy, gender identity, choosing partners, pleasure, marriage, children - and freely and safely access integrated services covering contraception, pregnancy, abortion, infertility, STIs, HIV, cancers and violence. We see a world where forced marriages, child marriages, female genital mutilation / cutting, and all forms of violence against women and girls are a thing of the past.
SheDecides works to make this world a reality by bringing together diverse people to stand together, take political action and speak out for the right to decide.
- Convene and strengthen- we come together to reinforce and strategically expand the SheDecides movement, and forge alliances between movement members and new potential allies.
- Take political action- we build on that movement strength by coordinating strategic political action and joint efforts to demand accountability for political and financial commitments for bodily autonomy.
- Amplify and speak out- we leverage the bold SheDecides brand and the power of our shared communication platform to amplify collective messages and political action, and create opportunities for progressive voices to speak out to a broader, global audience.
Together we are advancing bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights, and countering opposition. To create a world where SheDecides. Without question.
SheDecides empowers politicians, organisations, media, researchers and people – especially young people – across the world to work together in new ways to create a world where SheDecides.
