In January, Argentina became the largest Latin American nation to legalize abortion. And it was only possible through decades of grassroots organizing in a country with deep Catholic roots.
Argentina isn’t the only country where abortion activists are succeeding at advancing the idea of abortion as a fundamental human right; in recent months, positive change has come around the globe—all due to the tireless and inspiring efforts of a new generation of leaders.
In this special event, Rewire News Group’s president and editor-in-chief, Galina Espinoza, sits down with four of the leaders driving these on-the-ground movements:
- Mariela Belski, executive director of Amnesty International Argentina and human rights lawyer
- Nelly Munyasia, executive director of the Reproductive Health Network Kenya and midwife/nurse
- Rebeca Ramos Duarte, lawyer and executive director of GIRE, a Mexican reproductive rights organization
- Marevic Parcon, executive director of Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights
Check out the conversation below—it’s a liberating and informative discussion about the growing global effort to remove barriers to abortion care.
