Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

How and under what conditions do women take a stand? And are those stands —-whether for labor rights, health or education -— always recognized for what they are?

The International Reproductive Research Action Group or IRRAG recently set out to look at these and other questions having to do with women’s activism. In seven countries, they examined how women express a sense of entitlement or self-determination in making decisions about reproduction and sexuality. What they found were some surprising similarities across nations and groups from Egypt to Malaysia, the U.S., Brazil, Nigeria and the Philippines.

Guests:

  • Rosalind Petchesky, the founder and international coordinator of the International Reproductive Rights Research Action Group, based in New York.
  • Dr. Simone Diniz, the founder of the Colletivo Feminista y Sexualidad, based in Sao Paolo Brazil.
