Join us for our International Women’s Day Webinar – Organizing for Abortion Access: A Cross-Border Perspective

March 8th is International Women’s Day (IWD), a day set aside more than 100 years ago for women around the world to advocate for their rights. This IWD we expect to see inspirational memes and graphics across social media, coming from corporations, governments, non-profits, and politicians touting “women’s empowerment”. While it’s important to see this public affirmation, let’s remember that IWD started as a way for women in different countries to rally for liberties such as the right to vote, to hold public office, to work in safe environments, and to call for peace and an end to discrimination and misogyny. IWD is a day to advocate for gender justice and to build solidarity across borders, which will take more than colorful social media posts. 

Access to safe and dignified abortion is a key component of ensuring the right to control one’s body without government interference, which itself is critical to gender equality. Abortion laws in many states have gone backwards since the 2022 Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v Wade. At the same time, abortion laws in some countries in Latin America have been liberalized. What are some of the commonalities and differences in our movements to ensure abortion access for all? 

Join Pro-Choice North Carolina with our partners El Pueblo and Ipas for a panel discussion commemorating IWD! Our discussion will bring together advocates and providers from North Carolina and Latin America to share our experiences and ideas of how we can learn from each other and how we can work together to ensure reproductive freedom for all.
