The term was claimed and coined by women of color as a result of the <a href="http://www.iisd.ca/cairo.html" target="_blank">1994 International Conference on Population and Development hosted in Cairo</a>, and the reproductive justice movement emphasizes that a woman's reproductive health is not only based on individual choice but also a variety of factors and conditions within one's experiences, family, and community. While many women see abortion rights as their main issue – and it is indeed important – many women, and in particular women of color and low income women, often have difficulty accessing contraception, comprehensive sex education, sexually transmitted infection prevention and care, alternative birth options, adequate prenatal and pregnancy care, domestic violence assistance, adequate wages to support families, safe homes, and so much more. Even the right to parent is often threatened. Reproductive justice addresses all of these critical issues (Loretta J. Ross, SisterSong, 2006).</p> <p>The reproductive justice analysis also understands that women, and particularly women of color and their communities, experience reproductive oppression. Reproductive oppression is "the controlling and exploiting of women, girls, and individuals through our bodies, sexuality, labor, and reproduction (both biological and social) by families, communities, institutions and society" (<a href="http://reproductivejustice.org/assets/docs/ACRJ-A-New-Vision.pdf" target="_blank">Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice, 2005</a> and <a href="http://www.sistersong.net/publications_and_articles/Understanding_RJ.pdf" target="_blank">Loretta J. Ross</a>, <a href="http://www.sistersong.net/publications_and_articles/Understanding_RJ.pdf" target="_blank">SisterSong, 2006</a>). This reproductive oppression cannot be separated out from the other oppressions individuals and communities experience, just as a person's reproductive health experiences cannot be separated from mental, social, economic, familial, communal, or environmental well-being (<a href="http://reproductivejustice.org/assets/docs/ACRJ-A-New-Vision.pdf" target="_blank">Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice, 2005</a> and <a href="http://www.sistersong.net/publications_and_articles/Understanding_RJ.pdf" target="_blank">Loretta J. Ross, SisterSong, 2006</a>).</p> <p>This intersectional paradigm at the core of reproductive justice acknowledges that systems of oppression simultaneously discriminate based on race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, age, immigration status, language, and other factors. These intersecting forms of oppression and discrimination have historically resulted in power, privilege, and resources for a select few and limited access to power and resources for a large majority, including women of color, women in poverty, women as an overall group, and others. Reproductive justice aims to bring about the complete physical, mental, spiritual, political, social and economic well-being of women and girls, based on the full achievement and protection of not only women’s reproductive rights, but their human rights.</p> <p>This collection includes select resources that detail the history of the reproductive justice movement, provide comprehensive information on reproductive justice and social change, and lift up the work of organizations that are advancing a reproductive justice agenda. Also included are resources on the intersection of domestic and sexual violence and reproductive justice, and information on federal and state policies surrounding the issue.</p> <p>This is an update to a collection that was originally developed by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, and the Women of Color Network. We would like to thank SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective, especially Loretta Ross, and the Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice for their years of dedication to and development of reproductive justice as a framework and movement and for all of their resources that are part of this collection.</p> </div> Fri, 12 Aug 2016 00:40:12 +0000 ckeene 8066 at https://vawnet.org The Intersections Between Intimate Partner Violence and HIV/AIDS https://vawnet.org/sc/intersections-between-intimate-partner-violence-and-hivaids <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The Intersections Between Intimate Partner Violence and HIV/AIDS</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/ckeene" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">ckeene</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 08/10/2016 - 14:24</span> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://vawnet.org/sc/intersections-between-intimate-partner-violence-and-hivaids" data-a2a-title="The Intersections Between Intimate Partner Violence and HIV/AIDS"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fvawnet.org%2Fsc%2Fintersections-between-intimate-partner-violence-and-hivaids&amp;title=The%20Intersections%20Between%20Intimate%20Partner%20Violence%20and%20HIV%2FAIDS"></a></span> <div class="field field--name-field-featured-collection-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/sc_page/public/assets/images/2016-10/SCfeature-HIV.jpg?itok=moWEEWRD" width="399" height="366" alt="heart of red blood cells" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-sc-page" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Published</div> <div class="field__item">September 01, 2015</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Author(s)</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/author/alicia-gill" hreflang="en">Alicia Gill</a></div> </div> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="flag.link_builder:build" arguments="0=node&amp;1=7864&amp;2=bookmark" token="Wjpk6g0I96SsrJu35M3x2kjySW6pGp0SsnUhjka_13c"></drupal-render-placeholder> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Intimate partner violence and HIV/AIDS have devastating impacts on individuals and communities at large. They also have strong correlations, putting survivors of domestic violence at increased risk for contracting HIV/AIDS. According to the <a href="http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/pdf/ipv/13_243567_green_aag-a.pdf" target="_blank">Centers for Disease Control and Prevention</a>, women experiencing intimate partner violence have four times the risk of contracting STIs including HIV, than women not experiencing domestic violence. Studies suggest that intimate partner violence can be both a risk factor for HIV, and a consequence of HIV (<a href="http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/pdf/ipv/13_243567_green_aag-a.pdf" target="_blank">Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, 2014</a>). Despite a broader understanding of HIV/AIDS, increased research, and greater access to prevention services, the proportion of AIDS diagnoses reported among women has more than tripled since 1985. Persistent gender inequality, ableism, gender based violence and homophobia create barriers for women, people with disabilities and LGBTQ individuals in preventing HIV and receiving care after a diagnosis.</p> <p>Additionally, due to social, cultural and economic factors, women of color, and specifically Black/African-American women, bear the burden of both HIV and intimate partner violence. <img alt="HIV-1.png" height="213" src="/sites/default/files/assets/images/2016-10/HIV-1.png" style="float:right" width="348" />African American women constituted 64% of all women diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2010 and are 14 times more likely to die from AIDS-related complications than white women with HIV/AIDS (<a href="http://www.amfar.org/uploadedFiles/_amfarorg/Articles/On_The_Hill/2015/IB_Women-HIV_UnitedStates_2015-03-19_FINAL.pdf" target="_blank">AmFAR, 2015</a>). African-American women have an HIV prevalence rate nearly four times that of white women in the United States. African American females also experience intimate partner violence at a rate 35% higher than that of white females, and about 2.5 times the rate of women of other races (<a href="http://www.doj.state.or.us/victims/pdf/women_of_color_network_facts_domestic_violence_2006.pdf" target="_blank">US Department of Justice, 2001</a>).</p> <p>At the intersection of HIV/AIDS and intimate partner violence is sexual violence. Abusers commonly use sexual abuse and coercion to control the sexual, physical and reproductive rights of their partners. This increases the risk of HIV through forced sex, restricting access to condoms, and denying victims access to healthcare.</p> <p><strong>This Special Collection is designed to assist domestic violence advocates in providing support and resources to victims of domestic violence who are also living with HIV/AIDS or at risk of contracting HIV due to violence in the context of their relationship. This collection contains resources to help advocates and service providers understand HIV/AIDS and its connection to intimate partner violence, and provides resources to help expand program capacity to serve victims living with HIV/AIDS.</strong></p> <p><em>This collection may use the term victim and survivor interchangeably to talk about a person who is experiencing or has experienced intimate partner violence. We recognize different communities and individuals may identify with one term over another, or some other term altogether. Additionally, this collection may use the terms domestic violence and intimate partner violence interchangeably to refer to violence happening within the context of a current or past intimate or romantic relationship.</em></p> <p>This collection uses resources freely available on the Internet, citing and utilizing work and tools from many different partners, agencies, and government entities. Our hope is that this collection creates a simplified, one-stop compilation of the newest and most relevant information available on the subject. We intend to update this special collection regularly and add new documents, resources and information as it becomes available.

This report focuses on what is known as “full-spectrum” doula support, meaning their role within and across the reproductive health care experience, including in labor and birth, in the prenatal and postpartum periods, and in abortions, miscarriages, and stillbirths.</p> <p>The report is informed by in-depth interviews with doulas who work independently or as part of collectives or other formal organizations, as well as health plans and public entities that pay for doula services. From these interviews, it is clear that full-spectrum doulas are engaged in deeply meaningful work that improves the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. Nevertheless, there are significant barriers to the provision of, and access to, full-spectrum doula services that must be addressed, and this report includes concrete recommendations to help reach that goal.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-associated-links field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Associated Links</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.nationalpartnership.org/our-work/resources/health-care/maternity/our-communities-hold-the-solutions.pdf" target="_blank">&quot;Our Communities Hold the Solutions&quot;: The Importance of Full-Spectrum Doulas to…</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-material-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Material Categories</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/cultural-competence" hreflang="und">Cultural Competence</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/trauma-informed-approach" hreflang="und">Trauma Informed Approach</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/racial-justice" hreflang="und">Racial Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/reproductive-justice" hreflang="und">Reproductive Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/communities-color" hreflang="und">Communities of Color</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/sexual-health-literacy" hreflang="und">Sexual Health / Literacy</a></div> </div> </div> Thu, 17 Nov 2022 16:46:52 +0000 berdman 12725 at https://vawnet.org National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality https://vawnet.org/material/national-strategy-gender-equity-and-equality <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/berdman" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">berdman</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 10/22/2021 - 13:33</span> <div class="field field--name-field-material-type field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item">General Material</div> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="flag.link_builder:build" arguments="0=node&amp;1=12320&amp;2=bookmark" token="KqEUFYW1qpR8lcOdGtERsi66Ng6xsSo_43hlToeajJQ"></drupal-render-placeholder> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Published Date</div> <div class="field__item">October, 2021</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Publisher(s)</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/publisher/white-house-gender-policy-council" hreflang="en">White House Gender Policy Council</a></div> </div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://vawnet.org/material/national-strategy-gender-equity-and-equality" data-a2a-title="National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fvawnet.org%2Fmaterial%2Fnational-strategy-gender-equity-and-equality&amp;title=National%20Strategy%20on%20Gender%20Equity%20and%20Equality"></a></span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Advancing gender equity and equality is fundamental to every individual’s economic security, safety, health, and ability to exercise their most basic rights. It is also essential to economic growth and development, democracy and political stability, and the security of nations across the globe. Ensuring that all people, regardless of gender, have the opportunity to realize their full potential is, therefore, both a moral and strategic imperative.</p> <p>The first-ever <em>National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality</em>, created by the White House Gender Policy Council, sets forth an aspirational vision and a comprehensive agenda to advance gender equity and equality in domestic and foreign policy—and demonstrates that families, communities, and nations around the world stand to benefit.</p> <p>The strategy identifies <strong>ten interconnected priorities:</strong> 1) economic security; 2) gender-based violence; 3) health; 4) education; 5) justice and immigration; 6) human rights and equality under the law; 7) security and humanitarian relief; 8) climate change; 9) science and technology; and 10) democracy, participation, and leadership.  These priorities are inherently linked and must be tackled in concert.</p> <p>The strategy also adopts <strong>an intersectional approach</strong> that considers the barriers and challenges faced by those who experience intersecting and compounding forms of discrimination and bias related to gender, race, and other factors, including sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, age, and socioeconomic status.  This includes addressing discrimination and bias faced by Black, Latino, and Indigenous and Native American people, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders, and other people of color</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-associated-links field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Associated Links</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/National-Strategy-on-Gender-Equity-and-Equality.pdf" target="_blank">National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-material-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Material Categories</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/economic-justice" hreflang="und">Economic Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/racial-justice" hreflang="und">Racial Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/reproductive-justice" hreflang="und">Reproductive Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/gender" hreflang="und">Gender</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 22 Oct 2021 17:33:04 +0000 berdman 12320 at https://vawnet.org What is Gendered Islamophobia? https://vawnet.org/material/what-gendered-islamophobia <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">What is Gendered Islamophobia?</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/berdman" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">berdman</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 07/07/2021 - 12:59</span> <div class="field field--name-field-material-type field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item">General Material</div> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="flag.link_builder:build" arguments="0=node&amp;1=12147&amp;2=bookmark" token="Ac5RSnEcPlmwbE89ykp4CP-eSngYxDnSJLm9-8T8_i0"></drupal-render-placeholder> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Published Date</div> <div class="field__item">March, 2021</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Publisher(s)</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/publisher/asian-pacific-institute-gender-based-violence-apigbv" hreflang="en">Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (APIGBV)</a></div> </div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://vawnet.org/material/what-gendered-islamophobia" data-a2a-title="What is Gendered Islamophobia?"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fvawnet.org%2Fmaterial%2Fwhat-gendered-islamophobia&amp;title=What%20is%20Gendered%20Islamophobia%3F"></a></span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Building upon a history of shared values and intersecting work, the Partnership to End Gendered Islamophobia brings together HEART, Justice for Muslims Collective and Vigilant Love to build analysis, tools and power to dismantle Gendered Islamophobia.</p> <p>This workshop is specifically tailored towards practitioners in the field of gender-based violence and gender justice.

Moreover, this workshop includes discussions upon intra-community solidarity and what can be done within broader Asian American spaces to address gendered Islamophobia.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-associated-links field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Associated Links</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.api-gbv.org/resources/what-is-gendered-islamophobia/" target="_blank">What is Gendered Islamophobia?</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5daa2e451959d419aa03a0ed/t/600146e97c106d5c31e1b757/1610696426740/Final+GI+Report.pdf" target="_blank">Related Resource - Partnership to End Gendered Islamophobia Community Report</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-material-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Material Categories</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/racial-justice" hreflang="und">Racial Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/reproductive-justice" hreflang="und">Reproductive Justice</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/domestic-violence" hreflang="und">Domestic Violence</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/gender" hreflang="und">Gender</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/materials/religion-spirituality-faith" hreflang="und">Religion / Spirituality / Faith</a></div> </div> </div> Wed, 07 Jul 2021 16:59:34 +0000 berdman 12147 at https://vawnet.org What is the connection between domestic violence, sexual assault, and reproductive justice and how does it impact Black women? https://vawnet.org/material/what-connection-between-domestic-violence-sexual-assault-and-reproductive-justice-and-how <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">What is the connection between domestic violence, sexual assault, and reproductive justice and how does it impact Black women?</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/berdman" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">berdman</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 07/14/2021 - 15:11</span> <div class="field field--name-field-material-type field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item">General Material</div> <div class="field__item">NRCDV Publications</div> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="flag.link_builder:build" arguments="0=node&amp;1=12185&amp;2=bookmark" token="ExbtKkDzsvwzmuDEh03kjIJWp1zz7sRy82k8JFYlCPM"></drupal-render-placeholder> <div class="field field--name-field-published-date field--type-datetime field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Published Date</div> <div class="field__item">January, 2021</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-publisher field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Publisher(s)</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/publisher/national-resource-center-domestic-violence-nrcdv" hreflang="en">National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV)</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline clearfix"> <div class="field__label">Author(s)</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/author/alana-c-brown" hreflang="en">Alana C.
