Right to Sexuality: Intersections with Education, Employment, Law and Citizenship

Untitled-1

This paper examines the intersection between sexuality and education, employment, law and citizenship. The fluidity of sexuality and its capability of affecting people in multiple ways means that there is a very real need for enactments and implementations of effective laws and policies that are inclusive and prevents violence and abuse. Access to rights-based Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) spaces for children and youth; non-discriminatory employment opportunities and the recognition of sex work as a legitimate form of work; laws that are inclusive and efficient in preventing violence and sexual abuse and harassment in the real world as well as in the cyber space; and matters of sexuality in terms of legitimizing citizenship to a few marginalised group of people; these are some of the ways in which the paper highlights the fact that the fluidity of sexuality permeates all aspects of an individual’s life. The paper offers a reflective conclusion suggesting the complexity of approaching sexuality through only one perspective, and the real world consequences emerging from that method.
