OUR BODY: OUR BEING, OUR RIGHTS by Wunmi Akinbodunse

In celebration of the African Women’s Health & Rights day on Feb 4th, 2010, BAOBAB for Women’s Human Rights had a sticker & sensitization campaign at Ojota market to educate and sensitize traders on the need for women to be aware of their sexual and health rights (dangers of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), need to use birth controls etc).
Fliers & leaflets on reproductive health rights were distributed at the rally. The campaign was done in the three major languages of Nigeria, which stimulated diverse reactions from the crowd, women, embraced the initiative, while most men had issues with the fact that women have as much rights as men.
