The Fourth Africa Conference on Sexual Health and Rights took place in February of 2010 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopa, and was attended by more than 300 advocates, funders and policymakers working on sexuality and reproductive health and rights in Africa and throughout the world. In this video-- the first in a 3-part series-- panelists on a talk show discuss the roots and role of feminism in Africa.
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
