Women at the Center

When women have the power to make decisions about childbearing, the ripple effect is remarkable – bringing health, prosperity, enhanced human rights and a more sustainable future. Women at the Center is a digital storytelling project that connects the dots between sexual health and reproductive rights to women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability. This presentation will explore the ways women, families and communities become more resilient once their reproductive and sexual health needs are met. In addition, WATC will screen our film “I Love My IUD”, which highlights the Colorado Initiative to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy, a program that single-handedly dropped the unintended teen birth rate by 40 percent and saved Colorado taxpayers millions of dollars by offering CO girls and women free methods of contraception. Presented by Jade Begay of Resource Media and Belinda Griswold of The Work that Reconnects.
