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. To mark World Menstrual Hygiene Day 2019, we collaborated with five leading female artists to create a collection of limited-edition #MyBodyIsMine t-shirts. Celebrities including Dame Emma Thompson, Paloma Faith and new 007 Agent, Lashana Lynch, have supported our campaign, showing their support for women and girls worldwide.
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
I am proud to support @ActionAidUK’s new campaign #MyBodyisMine. A woman’s body should always belong to her and nobody else. Please get involved by adding your own picture and nominating your friends to get involved too! @Missbabysol@Nymmusic@MelodicJanelle @daisydrums pic.twitter.com/I4Cw3xE3cu— Paloma Faith (@Palomafaith) March 10, 2018
Across the world, ActionAid supports women to say #MyBodyIsMine by reducing violence within communities and ensuring women’s voices are heard. Our local, frontline staff make sure survivors receive the support they need and are able to access justice.
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. Please share the #MyBodyIsMine video to show your support:
