Let's talk about sex, or not: Promoting reproductive rights in Senegal

Description

In a special edition, Annette Young reports from Dakar on the difficulties in promoting reproductive rights in Senegal where sex outside of marriage is still very much taboo. The good news is that across Africa in the last decade, tens of millions of young women have taken up modern contraception. Yet conservative attitudes means it is normally done within the confines of married couples. Thereby ignoring the millions of young unmarried people who badly need access to contraception.

However, she received the full support last week of at least one group in her state: The anti-LGBTQ, anti-abortion Christian Civic League of Maine. Collins has positioned herself as a supporter of LGBTQ issues and reproductive rights. Even still, Collins says she was “truly grateful” for the group’s endorsement.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
