In the United States, we are grappling with systemic pushback against bodily autonomy, and service providers must play a role in advocating against these practices. Join Womankind for a timely and reflective conversation exploring what sits at the intersection of gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual and reproductive health. Using a justice-focused and anti-oppressive framework, speakers will discuss the importance of addressing our overall health as a part of GBV prevention and identify what collaboration could look like between GBV and healthcare providers working with survivors. This event is free and open to all!

Mary Luke, Board Chair, PowHer New York
