Here’s what we could find on the subject.
Felogene Anumo and Jade Maina talking about the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25

Why Women March to the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25

“I envision a country, or rather, a continent, where young girls and young women have power to decide on what to do with their bodies and have access to information so that they can make better and good decisions.”
– Ruth Mumbi, Social Justice Defender, Kenya

The Girls’ Globe team, led by Felogene Anumo and Abigail Arunga, spoke to women marching in the lead up to the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25. A common thread in the responses to why they were marching was access to information and services for women and girls – especially those in marginalized communities. Realizing sexual and reproductive health and rights will lead to better decisions about their bodies. Women were marching for women to have full autonomy over their bodies and to put an end to maternal deaths.
