The WRAP #90: Reproductive autonomy, Building back better, 60 seconds with Saranya Pranav

Dear WRAP-pers,

As we get closer to Spring – one day to go people! – the sunnier weather and the blossoms all help lend a hopeful air to the day.

So this WRAP we’re going with the Spring feeling and discussing the hope that comes from focusing on solutions.

First, we reflect on the power of working toward reproductive autonomy and justice from an intersectional perspective, when it comes to addressing reproductive coercion of migrant women. It helps to keep a hopeful eye on the end game so that you can work toward it, strategically and collectively.

Second, with COVID-19 numbers slowing down in Victoria, we spend a moment to envision an inclusive and equitable recovery, one that holds the promise of strengthened community connectedness.

Finally, we spend 60 seconds with PACE graduate Saranya Pranav, as she shares with us the positivity of her smile and the wisdom of her mother.

In other news, we’ve certainly been spreading the love this month, highlighting how we’ve been reaching migrant women during the pandemic, looking at how to eliminate cervical cancer and sharing our ideas for ending systemic racism at the GEN VIC’s Under the Radar forum.

Until next time,
The WRAP Team
