Sexual Rights?

Dear fellow feminists,

At the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), we were recently posed a good question–What are sexual rights? What is the difference between sexual rights and reproductive rights? Aren’t they the same?  

It’s a critical and controversial question when you’re talking about reproductive freedom and basic human rights. We’d like to pose the question to you and get your input–

How do you define sexual rights?

How do sexual rights differ from reproductive rights?

What might sexual rights mean to women in the developing world vs. in the U.S.?

Please comment far and wide–your input informs our work.
