Self-care

Self-care is radical. Collective care is revolutionary. Join the revolution.

Self-care is not an indulgence, it’s often a life-preserving act. Despite the name, people need support to prioritize and practice it. Our self-care initiative provides women and girls with requested information and resources to access services and even take healthcare directly into their own hands when necessary.

White Ribbon Alliance convenes the Self-Care Trailblazer Country Advocacy Working Group. Together, we are connecting women and girls with tools and people that help to navigate systemic and institutional barriers that leave many women and girls in the dark about their health and rights and rob them of their power to make decisions.
