International Women’s Day: Protecting sexual and reproductive health and rights

7 March, 2019

 

 

On International Women’s Day, Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters (SRHM) recognizes the great strides that have been achieved in securing sexual and reproductive rights for women but also gives recognition to the fragility of these gains and the urgent and ongoing need to continue to fight for those rights.


IN A WORLD WHERE SOCIAL JUSTICE AND SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS ARE IN JEOPARDY, WE MUST CONSTANTLY FOCUS ATTENTION ON THE VOICES OF THOSE WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND.

With your support, SRHM will continue to allow women to voice their experiences and their views through our peer-reviewed, international journal and help us to support new and emerging authors globally.
