Sexuality, gender and rights

Exploring Theory and Practice in South and Southeast Asiaedited by Geetanjali Misra, Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA), New Delhi and Radhika Chandiramani, Talking about Reproductive and Sexual Health Issues (TARSHI), New Delhi.

This volume analyses and documents the groundbreaking work done by many organisations to bring issues of sexuality and rights to public attention, to expand the freedoms of women and sexual minorities and to highlight the unfair distinctions faced by those not conforming to gender and sexual norms across a range of expressions, behaviours and identities in Asia.

This volume covers eight countries in South and Southeast Asia. The contributors address issues of power and social hierarchies by using the principles of justice, equality, non-discrimination, and access to rights and services. They cover diverse issues like sexual rights, sexuality education, sexual health services, transsexuals and other sexual minorities, HIV/AIDS prevention, as well as sex work and the representation of sexuality in popular culture.
