It's been 25 years since the declaration on the rights of women, was signed in Beijing - and in that time the landscape of health car inequity has changed. To celebrate we created 3 podcasts, in collaboration with The WHO and UN University, as part of the collection on Women’s Health and Gender Inequalities https://www.bmj.com/gender In these podcasts we'll be hosting conversations between women early in, and some who are more advanced in, their careers - doctors, researchers, legislators and campaigners, all working towards building a future in which women can thrive. As well as these in depth discussions, you will hear some shorter interviews from experts who have written for the collection. These give you a flavour of the bigger discussions going on in global health when it comes to gender equity - so keep an ear out for those during the discussions. In this first podcast, Adrienne Germaine talks to Fila Magnus. Adrienne starter her career as an activist for women's health in the 1970s, and went on to become president of the International Women's Health Coalition Fila Magnus is Director of Communications at the International Youth Alliance for Family Planning, and was born in the same year as the Declaration was signed. Fila and Adrienne discuss campaigning, now and then, and how the work that led to the declaration can be built on, but is never over... The additional interviews are from; Emma Fulu, Sheena Hadi, Oswaldo Montoya, and Claudia Garcia-Moreno.
