ARROW for Change – Reproductive Justice: Recalibrating the SRHR Agenda

Categories:

Sexual and reproductive justice exists when all people have the power and resources to make healthy decisions about their bodies, sexuality and reproduction. That means every person has the right to choose to have or not have children, choose the conditions under which to give birth or create a family, care for their children with the necessary social support in a safe and healthy environment, and control their own body and self-expression, free from any form of sexual or reproductive oppression. Social justice movements across the world have been calling for a “justice” framework in order to recognise the limitations of laws in enabling citizens to enjoy development benefits, freedoms, and well-being. The concept itself is extremely strategic because it brings in intersectionality and inclusion – and allows for more groups to take on the SRHR agenda. Most importantly, it will enable us to position SRHR, within the call for development justice – which is the call of the broader CSO movement of the SDGs.
This volume aims to build upon the language of reproductive justice within the framework of development justice in the Global South, and ground the concept of reproductive justice to ensure that health outcomes are fair and equitable to marginalised and vulnerable populations in the region.
