Understanding the anti-gender and anti-rights movements in Europe is essential to defending and safeguarding human rights and democracy in Europe and across the world. It’s equally important in advocacy for more progressive change for gender equality, human rights and in essence sustainability.
My guest is Neil Datta, Founder and Executive Director of European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights. Neil has over fifteen years’ experience in the field of political involvement in population and development. Throughout this period he has conducted in-depth research on anti-choice activity in Europe, publishing a report in 2018 that continues to receive worldwide media attention.
Our conversation is really about the anti-gender and anti-rights movements in Europe. What they look like. Where the funding for them comes from. Their growth and development in recent years. We also speak about what we can do to defend gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
