  • Reproductive rights

Even in Europe, women's reproductive rights are under attack. We’re investigating.

Why we care: While much of the media coverage of the “war on women” focuses on the United States, there is a hidden attack on women's reproductive freedoms in the “more progressive” European Union.

How we’re solving this: We’re putting women across France in the spotlight to have a say on how women’s rights laws are changing in Europe. The Women's eNews reporting team will provide an on-the-ground picture of the situation in France to expose the consequences of tightening laws on reproductive rights.

This year, Spain’s government backed a proposal to severely restrict the country’s abortion laws. The move has been a wake-up call for how quickly various women's rights can disappear. The major debate and backlash in France, spurred by Spain's actions, provides a window into how restricting women's rights in one European country can have larger, wide-reaching, and long-term repercussions for all European women.

Our team will conduct extensive interviews with health care and abortion providers, women seeking reproductive health care, protesters and other women's rights activists and government officials in France and bordering Spanish towns. Our reporting will amplify the voices and opinions of women across the country, including those who support and oppose France's current attempts to change women's rights laws.

Juhie Bhatia, Women's eNews managing editor, who has done extensive reporting on health and women's issues around the world, and Hajer Naili, Women's eNews staff reporter and an international journalist focused on women's rights, will spearhead the reporting. The final multimedia project will include stories, video and photos that will increase overall coverage of this important issue, by bringing it to the mainstream media's attention and by providing a framework for a sensitive approach.

As one Women’s eNews reader, a former foreign correspondent, said, “Women’s eNews has made…dismissive treatment more or less impossible now by creating a steady drumbeat of compelling and well-researched news items about women’s situation that editors cannot ignore or dismiss as isolated cases.” Support journalism that gives women a voice.
