Description

On May 28, the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) members and allies worldwide are commemorating the International Day of Action for Women’s Health. WGNRR is a southern-based global network that builds and strengthens movements for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and justice. In 1987, during a reunion of members of WGNRR in Costa Rica, May 28 was declared as International Day of Action for Women's Health. Since then, May 28 has been internationally renowned and women’s and health groups hold activities worldwide.

For over 30 years, women, girls, advocates and allies have continued to take action, stand up and speak out for sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR). WGNRR believe every woman has the right to health, to decide and to bodily autonomy and May 28 is a key day for us, as activists, to call for the prioritization, promotion, protection and advancement of SRHR on a local, national and international scale.

WGNRR, together with Philippine Safe Abortion Advocacy Network (PINSAN) and DAKILA, invite you to join us on May 28 for a film screening and forum on Filipino Women's SRHR: Current State and Pressing Issues. The event will be held at Microtel by Wyndham- UP Technohub, Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City at 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM. The event will start with the screening of Ramona Diaz's Motherland, followed by a forum to discuss the state of Filipino women's SRHR, including pressing issues and ways to address them.

We hope that you will support us on this important day for women around the world. Please send your confirmation of attendance on or before May 23 by replying to this email or calling us at 0949-803-4726 / 928-7785 (ask for Jurai Wenceslao).


Thank you and we are looking forward to having you with us on the event.
