Be Heard During the UN General Assembly: A Call for Women’s Assembly Testimonials

Aug 25, 2020 | News


Calling for your participation! Do you want your voice heard by a global audience during the UN meetings in September? Or do you know another woman with a strong voice which must be heard?

White Ribbon Alliance is producing a series of videos in which women will speak of the challenges they have faced during COVID and how the pandemic has impacted their rights to quality reproductive health care.

These short (1-2 minute) testimonials will be shared during a panel discussion at the Women’s Assembly, part of the online PMNCH Accountability brunch during the United Nations General Assembly in September.

Five panelists, all activists from different countries, will respond to the videos. Their discussion is focused on the What Women Want advocacy agenda, and women’s priorities during COVID, so this is an opportunity for women to speak out about their own experiences and demands, especially about the need for:

  1. RESPECTFUL AND DIGNIFIED CARE, SAFETY AND SUPPORT – BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF HEALTH FACILITIES
  2. CLEAN HEALTH FACILITIES WITH WATER AND TOILETS
  3. ESSENTIAL SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH MEDICINES AND SUPPLIES, LIKE FAMILY PLANNING
  4. MORE AND BETTER TRAINED MIDWIVES AND NURSES

The panelists’ responses will culminate in a joint Call for Commitments which will be presented to donors and partners.
