We launched the My Body Is Mine campaign on International Women’s Day 2018, encouraging everyone to post and share #MyBodyIsMine images on social media. Celebrities including Dame Emma Thompson and Paloma Faith have supported our campaign, showing their support for women and girls worldwide.
All women and girls have the right to control their own bodies. By supporting #MyBodyIsMine we can stand with survivors and expose violence against women and girls.
ActionAid ambassador Emma Thompson: “If there was a message I could give to all girls around the world it would be: This is my body and it belongs to no-one else.” Follow Emma’s lead by posting your own #MyBodyisMine picture to show your support if you agree pic.twitter.com/DltA5XDxA7— ActionAid UK (@ActionAidUK) March 6, 2018
