!!! PSA !!! the state of sex ed in our country is abysmal and access to verified information about sexual health is hard to come by. @rashiwadhera_ is doing her part to change that with @chokhritalks - to get women together to share their stories, to help one another and most of all to educate and be educated. It's an endeavor that's so very necessary I can't even put it in words. Big ups to you Rashi. . . . . #Repost @chokhritalks (@get_repost ) ・・・ This comment is from 2014, the thought from the dark ages, and the prevalence, shame to say 2018 'Health minister Harsh Vardhan had created a stir by claiming the supremacy of fidelity as an AIDS prevention measure. "Condoms promise safe sex, but the safest sex is through faithfulness to one's partner. Prevention is always better than cure," he was quoted as saying.' Via @thetimesofindia Is this the sex ed we're getting and where do you turn to for sexual health education if your health minister champions fidelity as a means to keep yourself safe. From Chokhri: Does being faithful to my current parnter imply I never slept with anyone else, and thus could have not contracted some sort of STI? . . . #sexeducation #sexed #india #chokhri #chokhritalks #sexualhealth #education #womenshealth #gynaecologist #righttoknow #informationispower
Medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) has been legal in India under certain conditions since the passage of the Act in 1971. India is one of the first few countries to legalise abortions. A survey conducted in 2007 by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare suggests that only 22.9% of men, and 28% of women were aware that medical abortions are legal. Source CREA @caroline.zeliang on accessing abortions and the support services around it even though it is legal. Pro-choice or not, what do you know of legitimate abortion clinics?

{swipe for all the #Chokhris } Ending the year on a high note with the most fun project I worked on in 2017! @chokhritalks is a feminist/women's issue centric online publication. It deals with women, their sexual health and representation in popular culture in an Indian context. I illustrated the cover artwork for their website that will go live as the new year begins. . . I strongly feel that an open community needs to be developed that can correctly inform and support women in their struggles, ambitions, explorations and choices. While I subscribe to the global feminism movement, there are nuances which are specific to women in India that need to be talked about and often approached differently. Stemming from the spirit of inclusion and support, CHOKHRI hopes to address these ideas one empowered woman at a time. . . Thank you Rashi for this dream project and I can not wait to see how CHOKHRI redefines and elevates feminist content in the coming year :) . . #illustration #gouache #handpainted #women #power #goddess #art #foliage #floraandfauna #thedesigntip #illustree #illustrationserved #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday #sudeeptitucker #girlpower #queen #womenofcolour #feminism #chokhri #empoweredwomen #womenissues #sexualhealth #opendialogue #artforacause #indianwomen #good_gouache #go_gouache #illustrationartists
