Our Voices, Our Choices

This series hands the microphone to people whose voices don’t often get heard - people now making choices which don’t conform to laws or customs - or whose views have long been disregarded, even censored. Its about communities fighting for basic human rights and its about the diverse tools of their struggles. We discover how women are securing their rights through political protest, we look in detail at women’s reproductive rights and we go into LGBT communities worldwide.

Women and girls just want to have fundamental human rights! That's what we hear in this podcast. Yet many states restrict their reproductive rights and set abortion alongside murder in criminal law. This podcast by Abby d’Arcy and Marlene Melchior goes to Ireland, Argentina, Malawi, Germany and China.
Global female protest is rocking the status quo. Unusually, it's mothers, daughters, even grandmothers coming together, taking to the streets and to social media in unprecedented numbers. We hear how some women risk their lives, and from others who changed mindsets, laws and the face of politics.
