#CountMeIn Call to Action Week 7: Dismantle stigma about sex.

1547851558 week 7 email graphic

It's Week 7...let's talk about sex! How might our communities normalize conversations about sex, abortion, contraception and reproductive health? In what ways are these conversations leading to shame, sexism and rape culture, rather than reducing stigma around these topics? Please read, reflect, and share these resources widely!

Dismantle stigma about sex.

Shame about sex, sexuality, abortion, contraception, etc. interferes with sexual and reproductive health for women of all ages. Stigmatization also contributes to rape culture and sexism. Refuse to perpetuate stigma by speaking about these topics in a non-judgmental, matter-of-fact, and/or positive way.
