In recent months, abortion bans have dominated the headlines. But these battles are not only happening in the U.S. We talked to colleagues and allies about abortion rights in Nicaragua, Mexico, the Philippines, and Zimbabwe – and what that means for people who need to access the full range of reproductive care.

Tiwonge at AWIDFrom AWID, I have learnt on how to strengthen women's organisations and to bring solidality on womens movement in our regions and our countries and documentation is important. To make sure that we are  achieving the MDG3 is when we as women we realise our rights, we exercise them and they are fullfied. It's we women who can make things to change by dismantling patriachal systems which are oppressing women. Create a space for women.

As I look forward to the opening of the AWID forum , I am quite excited about the work that the young feminist have planned for the conference.It pleases me to know that space has been opened up for young feminists within the forum and I hope their visibility will make an impact. One of the young feminists today said, "If you want to go fast, walk alone but if you want to go far, walk with others."

The meeting was explosive with different ideas from diverse women across the globe. It was an enriching and eye opening experience. It also challenged me as a woman and as an activist to do more for the women's cause.

We have a bad cholera outbreak. Everywhere I look, I get worried - anyone, including me, has a high chance of contracting cholera. As if we have not had enough troubles with the political jokers and the central bank severely compromising our right to life. I get increasingly angry, yet I know anger only gets me into a state of compromising my immune system. All I think of is if I, with the supposed-to-be-comfortable resources to ensure a middle-class life, am reduced to the life of a pauper, what more of the women in the rural areas, the townships, the farm and mine labourers - how are they coping.
