ASTRA Central and Eastern European Women’s Network for Sexual and Reproductive Rights and Health

On 15th November 2017, AWID, as part of the Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs), is providing a platform for feminist activists and women's rights advocates, partners and allies to discuss the state of anti-rights organizing and ways forward for the collective resistance.

Join AWID and OURs on Wednesday, 15th November from 10am EST to 12pm EST in a conversation to discuss:

  • Who is behind these attacks on the universality of rights?
  • Which of their strategies have been successful in making inroads into UN systems, and what effects has this already had?
  • What is the link between attacks on the universality of rights at the UN and the rise of ultra-conservative forces locally and regionally?
  • How are feminists and human rights advocates resisting already, and how can we strengthen our collective push-back?

Registration deadline is 14 November 2017. Spaces are limited and access to the session will be given on a first come first served basis.
