Population and Reproductive Rights
Oxfam focus on gender
This book highlights the need for an approach to population control which is based on reproductive rights, and stresses the importance of offering family-planning services and information in the context of women's empowerment. Issues covered are new contraceptive technologies; unsafe abortion and its cost in terms of women's lives and health; the cultural norms underlying attitudes to women's sexuality; and rape as an assertation of male power.
