White Ribbon Australia’s Board affirms support for reproductive rights

At its meeting today the Board of White Ribbon Australia affirmed its position statement in support of women’s reproductive rights as issued on 23 February 2017.

This statement was never open for debate or consultation and should not have been withdrawn from our website.  We very much regret any confusion or distress that has been caused by recent communications on this issue.

The rights of women to live safely and free of violence, and to have control of their reproductive and sexual health, are both fundamental human rights.  Addressing reproductive coercion is a key part of our efforts to eliminate violence against women.

White Ribbon Australia looks forward to continuing its critical work in partnership with a range of organisations in ending violence against women.
