Women’s Group to launch photo exhibit at the O4RH camp to challenge lawmakers
On week two of “Occupy for Reproductive Health (O4RH),” campaign, a group of women advocates working with grassroots communities is launching a photo exhibit that reflects the harsh realities of poverty especially among big families contrasted with pictures of families availing of RH services in Ifugao Province where an RH Code is implemented.
The ceremonial opening of the photo exhibit dubbed as “Sa Ngalan ng Ina at ng Anak” will highlight the challenge for the leadership of both chambers of Congress to end the more than 10-year struggle for the highly demanded RH bill by finally putting it to a vote.
Following its ceremonial launching on 29 November which is expected to be attended by Senators, District Representatives, local and national government officials, celebrities and artists the exhibit will run until December 3, 2011 at the O4RH Camp Site from 10:00AM to 7:30 PM.
A press conference for the O4RH will immediately follow the photo exhibit launch.
