Reclaiming SRHR – panel at CSW62
The Swedish Women’s Lobby will participate in the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women, taking place in New York March 12-23. Do not miss our panel “Reclaiming SRHR – Why commodification of women must be addressed in SRHR policies”.
Commodification of women is today one of the biggest threats to women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. As long as the trade in women for prostitution, pornography and surrogacy is a blind spot in SRHR policies, women’s sexual and reproductive rights will never be secured. This event will present a modern response to these growing threats to women’s rights.
The event is organized by the Swedish Women’s Lobby in cooperation with Unizon, Roks, RIFFI, SKV, the Fredrika Bremer Association and Operation 1325.
