Reproductive Justice & Violence Against Women

I’m a bit late getting this up (pesky vacation!), but since we’re on an article tear here at FHO this week, here’s a compilation worth checking out. VAWNet has a new section on Reproductive Justice and Violence Against Women: Understanding the Intersections. From the site: “Reproductive justice is an analytical framework or theory, a movement, and a practice that works to protect and guarantee women’s rights and the full achievement of human rights. The term “reproductive justice” was claimed and coined by women of color as a result of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development hosted in Cairo. It integrates reproductive health with social justice and human rights. The term reproductive justice represents a holistic view that acknowledges diverse factors that intersect in multiple ways to affect women and their reproductive rights.”
