Hello dear listeners! We are so happy to be back and to welcome you to season 3 of Heard Not Seen.
We're diving straight into it this season: Namibia, like many other countries, has incredibly antiquated laws and policies that do not protect womxn, particularly when it comes to their sexual reproductive health. A lack of access to contraception and comprehensive sex education means that, practically, a person's right to choose what happens to their body falls in the hands of others!
What's shocking is that Namibia's teenage pregnancy rates and 'baby dumping' (terrible phrase) are social plights, and yet we refuse to engage in a discussion around safe abortions. This week we try to wrap our mind around these issues and, try to broaden the conversation around sexual reproductive rights and how womxn's health is still in the hands of clueless old men. Boo!
