Rights Spotlight: May 28th – International Day of Action for Women’s Health


(Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights)

  • '


Today, May 28th, is the International Day of Action for Women’s Health.

May 28th has been commemorated by gender justice and women’s health advocates and their communities since 1987 and this day of action remains a key element of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) movement building.

Today is about our universal rights, about our bodies and our lives. Together, we declare that women’s health matters.

Join OURs this May 28th in celebrating the International Day of Action for Women’s Health and stand in solidarity with activists and individuals worldwide.
