Which #ReproHero are you?

Repro Heroes are champions of sexual and reproductive health and rights. Fierce and fearless, you can find them on the frontlines of the fight for safe abortion care, championing climate justice, defending women's rights and advocating for pleasure-centered sexual health.  The Repro Heroes have unique superpowers to help power the fight for equality and rights. But just like you, they are humans too. Rooted in shared values of respect, community and compassion, and fuelled by their desire to end inequality, tackle injustice and promote human rights for all, there is a #ReproHero in all of us.   So, which one are you? Take our quiz to find out. Which #ReproHero are you?Repro Heroes are champions of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Whether it’s a touch, a look, a thought or an idea, whether alone, with a partner (s!), online or IRL, when it comes to consenting adults engaging in safe sex, Kunyaza is all about putting the ‘oooo’ in the “OOOOOH YES” that feels good. A descendant of the Kuru Warriors of Africa, Kunyaza gets their name from an ancient central African sexual technique that focuses only on triggering female ejaculation and multiple orgasms in women. Kunyaza’s superpower is gender and sexuality shapeshifting, meaning they can enjoy (and induce) any type of orgasm for all types of bodies. With a strong background in comprehensive sex education, Kunyaza knows the science and the psychology behind all things sex and pleasure. A strong and clear communicator, unabashedly adventurous and highly creative, Kunyaza knows that pleasure looks different for everyone, and is all about the journey, not the destination.Likes: pleasure-centered sex education, setting mutually respectful boundaries, proper sex hygiene and behaviorsDislikes:sex as a means for reproduction only, lack of knowledge around female sexual anatomy, stigmatizing STIsValues:Communication, consent, respect Zofia Superpower: Telepathy (to communicate ideas through the power of her mind)About Zofia:Zofia, a name meaning wisdom, has been working tirelessly for years to defend human rights around the world. Recently, she has been working in an increasingly hostile environment in which women’s sexual and reproductive rights are being dismantled, and in which opposition and far-right movements are using tactics including intimidation, detention, threats and attacks to discredit and silence activists like her. But as one of the few female politicians in her local legislature, Zofia doesn’t back down. With the power to receive and transmit information with her own mind, nothing gets past this #ReproHero. Pragmatic and determined, much of her powers are derived from her ability to read and examine the minds of potential human rights violators, and take action before the damage is done. But defending human rights is draining work; even for a #ReproHero. Crucially, Zofia  knows when to take breaks - physically and emotionally - to find moments of peace. By dividing her heroic life with her personal life, she knows that when the time comes around, she is ready to take on the fight.Likes: Truth, transparency, human rightsDislikes: Toxic patriarchy, disregard for human rights and dignity, ideologies and political and socio-economic systems that disregard women’s rightsValues: Universal rights to equality, freedom and equality  Aizha Superpower: Supersonic voiceAbout AizhaAizha takes action! Loud and proud, she is determined to make sure youth voices are heard, and that young people are politically engaged and informed. Charismatic and energetic, Aizha is relentlessly questioning society and the status quo, demanding concrete action on everything from climate justice to reproductive rights. Aizha leads a busy and fulfilling life: she can be found in international court rooms, advocating at global conferences, leading a protest movement, writing to local policymakers, galvanizing other young leaders and demanding much-needed reform of the old ways of doing. She has the remarkable ability to persuade even the strongest opposition groups using reason and logic (and she won't hesitate to raise her voice when needed!). At the same time, Aizha knows that battles are not only won by marching in the streets, but by talking to family, friends and classmates. With a name of Muslim origin meaning 'strong and powerful', Aizha believes in empowering others and giving everyone an opportunity to fight for their own rights. Aizha will also make sure that YOU are the only one making decisions about YOUR body. Likes: Grassroots activism, sound policy, the right to strikeDislikes: Men making decisions about women’s bodies, blind opposition, burnoutValues: Diversity, representation, equal opportunityĀinaSuperpower: PrecognitionAbout Āina: Āina, which means “land” in the Hawaiian language, is well aware of the gendered impacts of the climate crisis - she can see for herself what further damage could be done to people and the planet without urgent and meaningful action. A fierce environmental defender against land grabbers and extractive industries, Āina has made it her mission to seek accountability from governments and global institutions to tackle the climate crisis head-on. Optimistic, but still a realist, Āina engages other activists, particularly feminists, to highlight the gendered impacts of the climate crisis with a particular focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights. In her day job as one of the world’s top climate scientists, Āina involves other women in decision-making and leadership positions, and ensures financing for climate-related projects is available to women. In doing so, Āina sets a noble example of what’s possible when climate activists and women’s rights activists come together as one. Endowed with the psychic ability to see directly into the future, Āina uses this vision to strengthen her resolve to fight for a world where all people are free to make choices about their family planning, without discrimination or worry.Likes: Green energy, Indigenous knowledge, rising global temperatures kept well under 2 degreesDislikes: unsustainable patterns of consumption and production, promotion of contraception as a solution for climate change, placing responsibility of tackling the climate crisis on those least responsible for contributing to itValues: Ethics, Nature, Accountability InayaSuperpower: Instant healingAbout Inaya:Inaya is a name of Arabic origin meaning ‘care’ or ‘concern’. When a humanitarian crisis hits, Inaya is on the ground providing lifesaving sexual and reproductive health care to those that need it most. Inaya knows full well that sexual and reproductive health needs are often underfunded and deprioritized in a crisis, and that the consequences (including reduced access to antenatal and prenatal care, increased rates of sexual and gender-based violence, and increased rates of sexually transmitted infections, among other things)  can be devastating. With lived experience of both natural and man-made disasters, Inaya knows first-hand the disproportionate impacts of humanitarian crises on women, girls and other marginalized groups. She also often benefits from greater acceptance, trust and access within crisis-affected communities, by providing coherent and comprehensive interventions based on what communities say they need, not what aid agencies tell them they need. Inaya also uses her instant healing abilities to help anyone in need, including by performing complex medical interventions on the spot with minimal resources. Inaya ensures women and girls have access to life saving care, advice and information they need - whether it’s emergency or long-term contraception, counseling services, STI treatment or maternal, antenatal or neonatal care.Likes: Equitable funding for sexual and reproductive health and rights in humanitarian responses, disaster preparedness, peace and non-violent conflict resolutionDislikes: Cuts to sexual and reproductive health funding in government aid budgets, rising costs of commodities and contraceptive supplies globally, 'pre-packaged' assistance regardless of contextValues:Compassion, Solidarity, LocalisationValentinaSuperpower: FlightAbout Valentina:Valentina believes in finding ways for people to centre their own needs and desires and act from a position of love and care for their families and partners. Valentina knows that abortion is healthcare. Period. Her name is derived from the Latin word ‘valens’ meaning ‘healthy and strong’, and she uses her superpower to fly in the wake of the ‘Green Wave’ for abortion rights that has already swept across Latin America. Never one to take 'no' for an answer, she channels her anger towards Conservative lawmakers that put their personal ideologies and beliefs before precedent and law into providing abortion access for those who have had their reproductive freedom stolen from them. So whether it’s offering non-judgmental advice on how to access safe abortion, administering or supervising medical or surgical abortion, or simply providing reliable information on comprehensive sex education and contraception, Valentina is the #ReproHero you want by your side to claim YOUR body and YOUR choices.Likes: Telemedicine, contraception, comprehensive sex education Dislikes: Abortion-related stigma, misinformation, policies that aim to control women’s bodiesValues: Bodily autonomy, self-care, reproductive rights How would you describe yourself in one word?Your friends and family would describe you as ... You follow your ... Where do you feel your most powerful?Where do you channel your spark from?What's most important to you?What's your greatest strength?Choose an element

When a humanitarian crisis hits, Inaya is on the ground providing lifesaving sexual and reproductive health care to those that need it most. Inaya knows full well that sexual and reproductive health needs are often underfunded and deprioritized in a crisis, and that the consequences (including reduced access to antenatal and prenatal care, increased rates of sexual and gender-based violence, and increased rates of sexually transmitted infections, among other things)  can be devastating. With lived experience of both natural and man-made disasters, Inaya knows first-hand the disproportionate impacts of humanitarian crises on women, girls and other marginalized groups. She also often benefits from greater acceptance, trust and access within crisis-affected communities, by providing coherent and comprehensive interventions based on what communities say they need, not what aid agencies tell them they need. Inaya also uses her instant healing abilities to help anyone in need, including by performing complex medical interventions on the spot with minimal resources. Inaya ensures women and girls have access to life saving care, advice and information they need - whether it’s emergency or long-term contraception, counseling services, STI treatment or maternal, antenatal or neonatal care.Likes: Equitable funding for sexual and reproductive health and rights in humanitarian responses, disaster preparedness, peace and non-violent conflict resolutionDislikes: Cuts to sexual and reproductive health funding in government aid budgets, rising costs of commodities and contraceptive supplies globally, 'pre-packaged' assistance regardless of contextValues:Compassion, Solidarity, LocalisationValentinaSuperpower: FlightAbout Valentina:Valentina believes in finding ways for people to centre their own needs and desires and act from a position of love and care for their families and partners.

So whether it’s offering non-judgmental advice on how to access safe abortion, administering or supervising medical or surgical abortion, or simply providing reliable information on comprehensive sex education and contraception, Valentina is the #ReproHero you want by your side to claim YOUR body and YOUR choices.Likes: Telemedicine, contraception, comprehensive sex education Dislikes: Abortion-related stigma, misinformation, policies that aim to control women’s bodiesValues: Bodily autonomy, self-care, reproductive rights How would you describe yourself in one word?Your friends and family would describe you as ... You follow your ... Where do you feel your most powerful?Where do you channel your spark from?What's most important to you?What's your greatest strength?Choose an element

Whether it’s a touch, a look, a thought or an idea, whether alone, with a partner (s!), online or IRL, when it comes to consenting adults engaging in safe sex, Kunyaza is all about putting the ‘oooo’ in the “OOOOOH YES” that feels good. A descendant of the Kuru Warriors of Africa, Kunyaza gets their name from an ancient central African sexual technique that focuses only on triggering female ejaculation and multiple orgasms in women. Kunyaza’s superpower is gender and sexuality shapeshifting, meaning they can enjoy (and induce) any type of orgasm for all types of bodies. With a strong background in comprehensive sex education, Kunyaza knows the science and the psychology behind all things sex and pleasure. A strong and clear communicator, unabashedly adventurous and highly creative, Kunyaza knows that pleasure looks different for everyone, and is all about the journey, not the destination.Likes: pleasure-centered sex education, setting mutually respectful boundaries, proper sex hygiene and behaviorsDislikes:sex as a means for reproduction only, lack of knowledge around female sexual anatomy, stigmatizing STIsValues:Communication, consent, respect Zofia Superpower: Telepathy (to communicate ideas through the power of her mind)About Zofia:Zofia, a name meaning wisdom, has been working tirelessly for years to defend human rights around the world. Recently, she has been working in an increasingly hostile environment in which women’s sexual and reproductive rights are being dismantled, and in which opposition and far-right movements are using tactics including intimidation, detention, threats and attacks to discredit and silence activists like her. But as one of the few female politicians in her local legislature, Zofia doesn’t back down. With the power to receive and transmit information with her own mind, nothing gets past this #ReproHero. Pragmatic and determined, much of her powers are derived from her ability to read and examine the minds of potential human rights violators, and take action before the damage is done. But defending human rights is draining work; even for a #ReproHero. Crucially, Zofia  knows when to take breaks - physically and emotionally - to find moments of peace.
