Remembering our gorgeous founder Margaret Lawton on her (would have been) 88th birthday.

Thank you for your wonderful legacy.

Margaret would have wanted all of us to remember that:

“While men seem to be slightly more at risk for life-threatening infections by COVID-19, women’s health is being doubly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Responses to the global crisis are consistently failing to prioritize the needs of women seeking reproductive care and freedom from violence. Many governments and health systems are all too comfortable using the challenge of the pandemic as an excuse to deny women’s rights to control their bodies and life choices. If anything, defending women’s health and rights is even more important during this time of crisis.”

Thanks Hesperian for these inspirational words.
