The World YWCA She Speaks platform together with Feminism in India recently launched their Young Woman’s Toolkit for advocacy on sexual and reproductive health & rights (SRHR) and mental health. The toolkit is freely available and includes 11 modules around SRHR, advocacy, mental health, young women’s leadership, human rights, and many more.
This toolkit, in line with the World YWCA strategy, is anchored on a program to support Young Women’s advocacy in SRHR and build their confidence to stand up
and speak out at national, regional, and global levels, and to take collective action to change narratives, policies, and to demand high-quality services. The central pillar is
for young women to design evidence-based advocacy initiatives through aspirational storytelling, emphasising their rights and to bodily autonomy. The World YWCA
aspires to contribute to the growing young women’s movement and body of knowledge on SRHR and mental health around the world. It aims to accelerate a collective action where young women are at the centre as drivers of change. This manual was created and published in 2020.
