The Adventures of Karapatana video series takes off from the comics’ ending showing Karapatana pregnant with Jake’s child. After she gives birth and learns about her SRHR, with the help of Tina, Karapatana continues on with her human rights adventures and focuses her time on helping people with SRHR woes.
Episode 1: ‘ When True Love Won’t Wait’
The story revolves around Carlo and Alyssa, a young couple who are in a relationship crossroad – Carlo is ready to take it to another level by having sex leaving Alyssa confused on whether or not to allow this to happen. Karapatana comes to Alyssa’s aid. She explains the individual’s right to choose when to have sex and options for family planning.
Episode 2: ‘Express Yourself But Protect Yourself’
Karapatana’s super human hearing ability alerts her about the amount of people deciding to have sex one day. She senses that none of them are aware of their SRHR. So Karapatana talks to George, Beth and Alfred, and they discuss the importance of SRHR and other related services.
Episode 3: ‘Be Your Own Super Hero’
We meet Karapatana’s support system in this episode and we learn peoples’ different perspectives on SRHR. Amnesty International’s work on SRHR is also discussed.
The criminalization of sexuality and reproduction around the world is a major barrier to human rights, and denies millions of us our human dignity.
Amnesty International launched ‘Body Politics: Criminalization of Sexuality and Reproduction‘, a series of tools to empower activists worldwide to challenge criminalization and stand up for their rights in 2018.
Through the Body Politics series, Amnesty International says it’s time to stand up against unjust criminalization of people’s bodies, sexualities, reproduction and gender expression.
The Body Politics Primer helps to build the movement’s knowledge and capacity to challenge unjust criminalization, and the Body Politics Toolkit promotes strategic campaigning on these issues. It is designed to empower activists and individuals to raise awareness and stand up for their rights. Amnesty International released the Body Politics Training Manual.
