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

Kvinna till Kvinna launched this week a very interesting report: “Suffocating the movement – shrinking space for women’s rights”.

Read more about what this is, how women are affected and why it is happening in the report which includes input from our region; Macedonia, Azerbaijan, Poland and more.
