[Event] “Rage for RH! — Rally against Gender Discrimination, for Women’s Empowerment!” -RHAN

“Rage for RH! — Rally against Gender Discrimination, for Women’s Empowerment!”

In celebration of women’s month, Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) invites you to “Rage for RH! — Rally against Gender Discrimination, for Women’s Empowerment!” on 30 March 2012, from 3:30 to 7:00 pm, at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani Grounds, Quezon Avenue corner EDSA, Quezon City.

While celebrating the many victories women have gained throughout our herstory, this gathering of women and men aims to: 1) unify women and women-supporters on the central place of reproductive health and rights in women’s lives; 2) creatively and collectively express our outrage at the capture of health policy-making by religious conservatives; and 3) highlight the value of women’s lives and empowerment in nation-building.

The event will include an art exhibit showcasing Agnes Arellano’s sculptures on women’s bodies, booths/stations where participants can enjoy several means to creatively express their frustrations over the ongoing delays in the passage of the RH Bill, a ritual of commitment through dance, chants, noise-making, and a cultural program of poetry reading and performances by pro-RH artists and personalities.
