Meet Judith Muntahli. She was born in 1977 in Ilenga, a village in the Isoka district of Muchinga Province in the far north of Zambia. She and her husband are subsistence farmers with nine children. During her first pregnancy, Judith (pictured below) was bitten by a snake. But by the time she got to the hospital, infection had set in and her leg had to be amputated. With no access to contraception, Judith carried nine more pregnancies on one leg using crutches. Sadly, her 10th child died when he was a month old.

“To end the cycle of poverty and ensure sustainable development, you have to make sure women are in control of their sexual and reproductive health and rights [SRHR],” said Mangala Namasivayam from the Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW). In numerous developing countries, a range of cultural and religious factors mean that many, mostly women and young girls, are unable to fully realise these rights.
