Manahil Siddiqi ’15 recently wrote an article on women’s health and her experience on a delegation to Nicaragua that appeared in the nonprofit organization ProNica’s newsletter.
From the article, “The women I met in Nicaragua are a foundational part of a global women’s movement to address injustice and elevate the quality of life for women. They insist on women’s rights to health, and their efforts remind me of my power to insist on the same.”
ProNica is dedicated to building sustainable cross-cultural relationships between the people of Nicaragua and North America using Quaker values. Manahil’s delegation to Nicaragua was part of a course at Haverford she took during the fall semester on Reproductive Health and Social Justice. In the fall of 2014, this course will be offered as part of 360° Program “Struggles for Global Health Equity,” a program Manahil helped execute with the professors involved.
