What do we do?

GIRE works on six priority issues from a feminist and human rights perspective: contraception, abortion, obstetric violence, maternal mortality, assisted reproduction and work-life balance. While our work focuses on the sex and gender-based discrimination faced by women and girls in Mexico, in our pursuit of reproductive justice, we recognize that gender intersects with other forms of discrimination based on race or ethnicity, age and social status. In addition, GIRE recognizes that the discrimination women face not only affects them, but also society as a whole, their community, and particularly, their families.

GIRE seeks to promote cultural change in Mexico through a comprehensive strategy comprised of: providing legal accompaniment, communications strategies, advocacy and demands for comprehensive reparations in cases of violations of reproductive rights including measures of non-repetition at both state and federal level and documenting conclusive data in the national context and the highest international standards to support our work. Each of GIRE’s departments is responsible for part of this strategy and works in parallel toward a shared goal: to achieve reproductive justice for Mexican women and girls.
