Women’s access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) is a major concern affecting women, young women and girls across the globe. Many women don’t know their rights and don’t have access to adequate health services or the knowledge they need regarding their own bodies. In many cultures around the world, men or families have often been responsible for the decisions taken about the bodily rights of girls, young women and women – often without their consent. This has impacted women’s health and rights and exacerbated gender inequalities.
The goal of the #MYSRHR Contest is to raise awareness on SRHR issues impacting girls, young women and women around the world. To participate to the contest contestants had to share a video, picture, painting, poetry, showing what SRHR meant to them.
We received a number of incredible submissions for the contest of SRHR materials. We would like to thank all the contestants for the amazing and powerful projects they shared during the campaign.
