At YWCA, we're committed to creating safe and supportive spaces for young women to share their stories. This is why we organised the Young Women Speak Up event this week as part of AIDS2014. We heard from a number of young women in the World YWCA delegation. Thank you to Andrea from the YWCA of Honduras, CZ from the YWCA of India and Sylvia from the YWCA of PNG for speaking up about your experiences.
