#NewChapter - Why Human Rights in Childbirth Matter
Fri 28 October 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
On 15th September Rebecca Schiller’s book Why Human Rights in Childbirth Matter was published by Pinter and Martin. The book advocates for the human rights of all childbearing women here in the UK and around the globe, telling their stories and exploring the cultural and political forces surrounding birth in 2016. Insisting that women matter in the birth room, Rebecca shows how neglecting birth rights can have serious implications for women’s broader freedoms at home and abroad.
We need your help to seize this chance to start a new chapter for human rights in childbirth. We are helping Birthrights protect childbearing women by hosting a fundraising book club/ talk to put these issues firmly in the spotlight. We’re asking you to invite your friends and colleagues round to discuss Rebecca’s book and to make a small donation to support the work Birthrights does. You can also join in the conversation using the#newchapter hashtag on social media and you can help us spread the word about what Birthrights does and why it matters.
The funds you raise will help Birthrights to continue to provide expert legal advice, give midwives and doctors the tools they need to provide respectful care, influence maternity policy and campaign for change for all women.
You can purchase the book at http://www.pinterandmartin.com/why-human-rights-in-childbirth-matter.html
