Bodily Autonomy: A Framework to Guide Our Future

nwghaad-17-webinar-promo-v1

 

Feb. 17: In honor of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD), Positive Women’s Network – USA invites you to join us in asserting and celebrating the bodily autonomy of all women and girls, including women of trans experience, living with HIV.

What is “bodily autonomy,” and why talk about it now? 

Bodily autonomy is the simple but radical notion that individuals have a right to control what does and doesn’t happen to their bodies. This is central to PWN-USA’s vision of a world where all women and girls living with HIV can lead long, healthy, dignified lives, free from stigma, discrimination, and violence in all forms.

Please join us for a webinar on Thursday, March 9, at 3pm EST/12pm PST explaining bodily autonomy as a crucial framework for understanding and fighting the intensifying, oppressive attacks on women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, LGBQ and trans folks, and people living with HIV and other chronic health conditions.

Confirmed presenters include:
Micky Bradford, Southern Regional Organizer, Transgender Law Center & Southerners on New Ground
Bré Campbell, Co-Founder & Executive Director, Trans Sistas of Color Project Detroit; Board Member, PWN-USA
Dázon Dixon Diallo, Founder & President, SisterLove Inc.
Ena Valladares, Director of Research, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice

 

It will require all of us to demand a world where the bodily autonomy of all women and girls living with HIV is respected and upheld, including the right to control our reproductive decisions, health and labor; freedom of movement and migration; and freedom from state violence.
