As a part of the international alliance for women's rights, She Decides, Thursday the 2nd of March 2017 Denmark will be co-hosting a conference on women’s rights. She Decides was formed as a response to the resent reintroduction of the so-called Global Gag Rule, putting millions of the world's poorest and most vulnerable women at risk of losing access to contraception, sexual education and family planning.

The conference will be held in Brussels with the participation of like-minded countries from around the world and Denmark will be co-hosting the conference together with Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands. The Minister for Development Cooperation in Denmark, Ulla Tørnæs, is pleased to have succeeded in mobilizing a broad support for this international conference focused on women's rights.
