Analysis on Sexual and Reproductive Rights

WIDE+ member and researcher Christa Wichterich has written a 40 page analysis on current debates and theoretical views on womens’ Sexual and Reproductive rights.

Women’s bodies have regularly been – and still are – the central target of conservative and fundamentalist ideology and praxis. Although the individual right to self-determination has always been shaped by social and cultural norms and legal frameworks, it is currently being determined more than ever by reproductive technologies and medical issues.

This essay provides analytical background information for critical and controversial debates, continues the politicisation of seemingly personal issues, aims to open space for the clarification of positions and provide motivation to explore political intervention. Therefore, it raises questions rather than simply providing answers.

It is published by the Heinrich Böll Stiftung and Gunda Werner Institute:
