AGAINST MY WILL

CHILD MARRIAGE. FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION. GENDER-BIASED SEX SELECTION.
DEFYING THE PRACTICES THAT HARM WOMEN AND GIRLS  AND UNDERMINE EQUALITY

UNFPA, the UN’s sexual and reproductive health agency, invites you to a special series of events marking the Asia-Pacific launch of our annual flagship global report.

This year we focus on harmful practices against women and girls – practices that are seen, to one extent or another, the world over – jeopardising the lives, health and wellbeing of millions.

Join globally-renowned experts, advocates and activists as we discuss the challenges as well as the opportunities in eliminating these practices and creating a better world.

Tune in to three very special hour-long events live on Facebook and YouTube:


Tuesday, June 30, 3pm Bangkok

Against my will: SWOP Report overview and Too Young to Wed: Ending child marriage in Asia and the Pacific


Tuesday, July 7, 10am Bangkok
