Hopes for the Future after the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25

“My vision is that we will have all girls being able to access sexual and reproductive health knowledge and rights.”
– Mourine Achieng, Moving the Goalposts

This week, Girls’ Globe has been on the ground at the Nairobi Summit to amplify the voices of grassroots activists, youth leaders and passionate advocates. 25 years ago, in 1994, the International Conference on Population and Development adopted a landmark Programme of Action. There has been significant progress since then, but dramatic inequality remains, and we have a long way still to go. What happens after this year’s summit is crucial.

In this video, we hear from women about their hopes and visions for the future.

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.
