Welcome back to our Podcast series. As women, it is very important for us to know our rights and own decisions that are to be made about our individual bodies. But, have you wondered about how challenging that can be at times? There can be many reasons that make women’s reproductive health and rights a difficult area to talk about, let alone owning it.
Team Hidden Pockets discusses this issue with our team of specialists from areas such as Roopnagar district, Faizabad, Aliganj and Pune; who help us understand the importance and the need for women to own decisions around safe abortions. This podcast is specifically created to talk to women who have been working in the area of women’s health and reproductive rights for a while now. Listen to them share their personal and professional experiences with us.
We begin with Video volunteers from Pune District, move onto Arpan Society from Punjab, to Janvikas Kendra from U.P., and finally to Mahila Atma Suraksha Sanstha, U.P. Each of these women share the heroic work of their organizations that work in the area of safe abortion, women’s rights and providing services. Listen to them discuss how important The Right to Life and Respect of one’s body is for women.
Women today and since time immemorial have been struggling with knowledge around safe abortion techniques, breaking free from the shackles of patriarchy and making informed decisions about their bodies and even just doing what is good for them. Our specialists relentlessly work each day to make the lives for thousands of women who are struggling, better each day. Their only message is to empower yourselves and take ownership. Don’t let anybody make these decisions for you. Go to your nearest public health clinic, access non-profit organizations around you and make your abortion safe. Let’s not be afraid anymore to discuss Safe Abortion.
A special thanks to CREA for introducing these wonderful women to Hidden Pockets.
