UN Women stands with the women of #Iran in their demands to protest injustice without reprisal, and to be free to exercise their bodily autonomy, including choice of dress. All women who have been arbitrarily detained must be released. #MahsaAmini unwo.men/cInS50KVeHQ

Today is #SafeAbortion Day & here's a reminder: Over 1.2 billion women & girls live in countries with some restrictions on access to safe abortion. When safe & legal access to abortion is restricted, women are forced to resort to less safe methods, often with damaging results.
