How do abortion rights in El Salvador work when it's a crime?

March 17, 2020

*CANCELLED* Due to the coronavirus and information from the Public Health Agency of Sweden regarding the increased risk of the new coronavirus spreading in the Stockholm region as well as the safety of our members and the speaker, we have decided to cancel the lecture.

The Stockholm's association of international affairs is happy to invite you to this year’s first gender lecture on the 18th of march with Alice Hansson about the conflict around the right to abortion in El Salvador.

Abortion law is a right that is challenged in many places and El Salvador is a strong example where women's right to abortion is not seen as a right and instead is seen as a crime. It is with this basis that Hansson will explain the problems that El Salvador’s abortion rights fighters are facing.

In Alice Hansson own words this lecture will be about:
“How does sexual and 'and rights in El Salvador and in Argentina work? I like to talk about my internship at a women's rights organization in El Salvador and my field work on the women's rights movement in Argentina. During my lectures, I will talk about civil society's struggle and work for women's rights in Latin America with a special focus on global goals 3, 5 and 6.
I will also share my experiences of how the criminalization of abortion and how unplanned and unwanted pregnancies affect women's social and economic opportunities. I will also talk about how El Salvador is working with young people to strengthen their sexual and reproductive rights. In interest, I also lecture on the lack of access to water and the work to ensure access to sustainable water management for all. "

Date & time: Wednesday 18/3 18.00
Location: Stockholm University, Södra Huset hörsal 5

The event is free for UF Members to attend. To prevent the corona virus to spread we will not serve fika during this event and we advice everyone to not sit close to each other and not to attend this event if you are not well.
