Bans Off Our Bodies – A Poem for Women’s Liberation

They seek to curtail our reproductive freedom,
strip pregnant women of reproductive agency,
thwart pro-choice legislation,
shut down abortion clinics,
try to convince us that our bodies are not ours to keep.

That our personhood and bodily autonomy are conditional.

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar lived under a tight military fist for 50 years. Similar to North Korea, Myanmar’s people had no communication with the outside world.  And the world did not know about them. In 2010 Aung San Suu Kyi, the people’s hope, was

A Practical Young Feminist Guide to Global Convenings

The 26th United Nations Climate Conference of the Parties (COP26) was a glaring example of what happens when grassroot organisers are excluded from conversations concerning their lives. Intended to place the world on a path towards averting a climate disaster, the summit failed after leaving the Global South and young people out.

Emergency Response for Women and Girls in Afghanistan

The tragedy of the Taliban’s quick take over of control in Afghanistan has sent waves of horror and grief around the world. It’s with pain that we see the images of desperation coming out of the country – where more than 400,000 people have fled their homes. What this means for Afghanistan is currently unravelling, but what we know, is that women and girls are among the most vulnerable.

Brave activists and organizations are stepping up their work to support women and girls in Afghanistan. Despite the fear and worry, there is hope in the resilience and strength of the activists working for change.

In this post, I share four important organizations that need your support in this current crisis.

I also share about what our member organizations are doing to support women and girls in Afghanistan.
