MALAYSIA: Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW)


Denial of access to safe and legal abortion is a form of institutional violence against women. We discussed the importance of access to safe and legal abortion and its relationship with violence against women. ARROW joined the New Tactics in Human Rights community for an online conversation on Violence against Women: Advocating for Legal Reform, as a Conversation Leader. ARROW facilitated a discussion on Wednesday the 28th of September as part of the Global Day of Action for Access to Safe and Legal Abortion. Go to and register to start talking, or engage through our Facebook event. Our discussion examined how and why the systemic denial of sexual and reproductive health services, including access to safe and legal abortion, is a form of institutional violence against women. We also be joined a #Sept28 Twitter Chat hosted by CREA from 3.30 – 4.30 pm (GMT+5:30).
