Multimedia Library on Reproductive Rights

The organisation Puntos de Encuentro compiled this multimedia library on the issue of reproductive rights. The multimedia library is a compilation of 78 documents in audio, video and text including theoretical analysis, investigations, tools and methodologies for training, legislation, statistical data, systematisations of actions by the women's movement, and sites of interest that may be useful when addressing the issue of reproductive rights. All of the information is related to the issues of the debate on abortion, birth control, teenage pregnancy, free choice maternity, maternal mortality, responsible paternity, and population policies.

Documents include titles such as:

  • 28 de septiembre: Despenalización del Aborto ("September 28th: Decriminalising Abortion")
  • Abortos Libre de Riesgo: Guía Técnica ("Risk-free Abortions: A Technical Guide")
  • El Estado Laico y Derechos de la Mujer "(The Secular State and Women's Rights")

The videos are produced for television by Sexto Sentido. These include a 38-mintue feature called Padrisimo, a video collage on paternity. In the audio section, there are vignettes and radio programmes about single mothers, abortion in Guatemala, and single life versus married life. Finally, there are links to other websites that provide information on issues related to reproductive rights, as well as access to the entire bibliography of Puntos de Encuentro.
