Solidarity Can’t Wait: 4 Things You Can Do This Year

In some parts of our world, the backlash for gender equality is here. And in other parts, we’re seeing the fruit of bold feminist movement building. To fuel the fire of change and to avoid the burnout that so many activists, advocates and changemakers experience, we need to organize. In an increasingly connected world, building global solidarity is the only way to sustain movements of change for gender equality, human rights, social justice and sustainability.

We’re facing growing obstacles for movements of positive change.

In this post, Julia shares 4 things you can do this year to build solidarity for gender equality, human rights and sustainability.

Why We Must Harness the Collective Power of Mothers

Five years ago, after giving birth to my daughter, I decided to commit the rest of my life to ensuring that every woman has access to world-class maternal care.

I suffered from postpartum hemorrhage—excessive bleeding due to obstetric trauma. Postpartum hemorrhage can be a life-threatening complication and is the leading cause of maternal death globally.

In impoverished areas, the rate of maternal mortality and morbidity remains staggeringly high. The good news? Most maternal deaths are entirely preventable, as are disabling childbirth injuries like fistula.

Your action today can change lives. Read the post Harnessing the Collective Power of Mothers, published on Girls’ Globe. Then, brighten a woman’s world by making a year-end gift to Fistula Foundation, an organization that believes that no woman should suffer a life of misery and isolation simply for trying to bring a child into the world.

A mother recovers with her newborn, who was delivered under the supervision of trained health professionals at Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital, a public health facility. Institutional births are one of the government of India's key strategies to reduce infant and maternal mortality, and to improve the overall health of the mother and child. An average of 7,000 births take place at Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital each year.

Why do Women Still Die Giving Birth in Nepal?

Maternal mortality is one of the leading causes of death for women of reproductive age in Nepal, most of which occur due to direct obstetric complications at the time of birth and during the postnatal period.

The overwhelming majority of maternal deaths occur in rural, poverty ridden areas where healthcare services are often inadequate or inaccessible. Even in places with access to health services, there is a severe shortage of trained medical staff.

We Need to Talk About Periods in a More Inclusive Way

The concepts of gender and sexuality are evolving at a decent pace to make the world more gender-fluid. Yet, the topic of ‘menstruation’ is still fraught with cissexism – or the discrimination against transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals.

The language we use is important.
