WECF - Women Call For Better Protection From Hazardous Chemicals Worldwide

On International Women’s Day 2016, Women International for a Common Future (WECF), released its “Women and Chemicals” publication and called for more political action for better health protection from harmful chemicals.

In this publication WECF looks at the impacts of e.g. highly hazardous pesticides, mercury, and endocrine disrupting chemicals on women’s health. ‘Women and Chemicals’ was developed with support and expertise from the United Nations, civil society and scientific institutes.
