The International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) leads global and local actions to secure every woman’s right to a just and healthy life. We are creating a world where women are free from discrimination, sexual coercion and violence, and have access to health services and information. The Coalition is based in New York, and we work with 75 partners in 10 different countries as well as the United Nations. In the course of our staff and partner travels, we shoot a lot of short videos, featuring activists, advocates, youth leaders, and colleagues. Our videos document the women's rights and health movement around the world. Site: http://iwhc.org Akimbo, our blog: http://blog.iwhc.org
