Against the backdrop of recent international trends endangering women’s rights, Amandine Clavaud, Director of the Fondation Jean-Jaurès Gender Equality Observatory, and Déborah Rouach, Project Officer of the foundation’s international department, took stock of abortion rights in France, in the European Union and worldwide, and made six recommendations to guarantee this right at European and national level.
As we marked International Safe Abortion Day on 28 September, attacks and threats intended to control women’s bodies have never been more prevalent. This policy brief attempts to provide an overview of the legislation in force worldwide and the many ways in which the public health crisis impacts women’s access to contraception and the right to abortion.
Finally, it frames the upcoming French Presidency of the Council of the European Union as an opportunity to put women’s rights on the European and international political agenda.
