What is the SheDecides Movement
SheDecides is a global 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.
Our members include governments, civil society organizations, youth leaders, parliamentarians, activists, service providers, researchers, media, artists and donors.
We bring together leaders from Africa, Asia, the Arab Region, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and North America. Since 2017, we have been standing up for her right to choose.
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, including access to safe and legal abortion services.
What we do:
Stand together, Take action and
As a diverse global movement of leaders and experts, SheDecides drives progress for bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
As well as working with its members, SheDecides partners with ally organizations and those that do not work on SRHR to build greater support for the right to decide.
The SheDecides movement is a catalyst for collective action. Together we build support for the right to choose, including access to safe and legal abortion services and comprehensive sexuality education.
We speak out against opposition and the rollback of rights. And we mobilize global political and financial support for bodily autonomy.
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 expand the SheDecides movement. We forge alliances between movement members and new allies.
- Take political action
We coordinate action to demand accountability for political and financial commitments for bodily autonomy. We support those excluded from decision-making spaces, such as young people, to gain access to global advocacy spaces.
- Amplify and speak out
We use positive communications to build support for bodily autonomy. We challenge negative narratives that stand in the way of the right to choose.
