Giselle Carino will speak about the recent historic abortion reform in Argentina that has inspired organizations and activists working for women’s health and rights. Considering her more than 20 years of experience in sexual and reproductive health and rights in Latin America and the Caribbean, she will discuss the political landscape as the Green Wave feminist movement from Argentina sweeps across the region.

Speaker:

Giselle Carino is the CEO for IPPFWHR (International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region), a progressive feminist ecosystem of 26 and growing local partner organizations largely from the global South, who share a common mission: to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care; eliminate violence against women, girls and gender-diverse people; provide sex education; and fight for sexual and reproductive justice by dismantling structural sexism, racism, and other forms of oppression.

Moderator:

Professor Alexandra Gheciu, Full Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and Associate Director, Centre for International Policy Studies, University of Ottawa
