Time has come for the global movement for sexual and reproductive rights of all women to stand together and make one clear demand – access to affordable, safe and legal abortion now! #IresistWepersist
While the current geopolitical context is often discouraging, the landscape for ensuring SRHR, particularly access to abortion, has never been easy – there have always been challenges. And while there have always been threats to fully realizing SRHR, there have also been and continue to be amazing and powerful forms of collective resistance, fuelled by brave individuals and local organisations opposing injustices in a myriad of ways.
Our aim this year is to thus highlight, promote, and support the many different ways activists are currently individually and collectively challenging the status quo and resisting in diverse contexts, thereby inspiring activists, allies and collectives to continue their important abortion advocacy.As such, we are excited and hopeful that together–with your help–this year’s September 28 will be one of the strongest days of action yet!

September 28 has been a regional campaign for decriminalization of abortion in Latin America and Caribbean for nearly twenty years before being taken on by SRHR activists all over the world as a Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion in 2011. WGNRR undertakes September 28 annual campaigning activities in collaboration with its members, partners, and allies around the world, and as a member of the International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion.
