Our Rights, Our Lives

Dear partners,

Please join us in endorsing the Our Rights, Our Lives: Women’s Call to
Action toward the 20-year review of the Cairo conference in 2014:

It was developed by an inter-generational group of over 30 feminists
convened by Realizing Sexual and Reproductive Justice (RESURJ),
International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) and Development
Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN).

Please use this rallying call to mobilize your constituencies toward
reclaiming and realising the hard won sexual and reproductive rights
and health agenda. Endorsements (name, organization, country) should
be sent to info@resurj.org <mailto:info@resurj.org>

The statement with all signatories will be delivered to delegates at
the upcoming UN Commission on Population and Development in April

REDtalk: Come talk to us!


CODE RED will be hosting REDtalk: a series of conversations aimed at bringing together people new to feminism and activism in the region.  The intention is to create a regional programme of action for 2012:

  • Tell us what you think are the key issues.
  • Help us define and plan activities to take place nationally and regionally.
  • Volunteer for fundraising and mobilising.
  • Or simply tell us about what you’ve been doing in your own communities already.

Far from feminism being outdated there are a lot of new faces across the region committed to lending feminist voices to issues of gender, environmental, economic and social justice.  REDtalk seeks to bring together these new voices to form a powerful force for activism, advocacy and lobbying in the region.  Many of you have been working hard in your own communities and it would be great for all of us across the region to meet and share experiences.

Email us at redforgender [at] gmail [dot] com for more information or to participate. Please include your SKYPE ID in your email.
