SheDecides is a global movement of people willing to Stand Up and Speak Out for her right to decide. We believe that by sharing honest and personal stories free from fear and shame, women and girls will recognise how political choices and powerful narratives shape their own experiences. By coming together and sharing those experiences, they will demand to be included in discussions and decisions that affect their lives.
The growth and vitality of the Black Lives Matter movement and the important conversations it has sparked over the past several years has inspired a process of reflection and action for racial justice at SheDecides. As a global movement of activists in many countries and from many communities, it is crucial to understand how race as a social construct, and racism as a system of oppression, intersect and affect our ways of organising for her right to decide.
As a first step, we are working with a consulting firm, Diversity Focus, to understand the perceptions and attitudes of the SheDecides movement towards racial justice in a movement-wide survey.
