The women smashing Catholic taboos in the Philippines

Such is the stigma around sex education and family planning in the Philippines that 65% of women there still do not use contraceptives. Five years ago the Philippine Congress passed a reproductive health law guaranteeing universal access to family planning, but misinformation is still rife. We follow three campaigners working in communities to challenge the myths, and help girls and women plan their families and take control of their future
