Sexual and reproductive health and rights are fundamental to women’s human rights. Historically, and in many countries at all levels of development today, girls and women do not have control over their reproductive functions or own bodies, and are forced into unwanted marriages and childbearing, which can restrict their access to education and employment and other opportunities. The approach in this module emphasizes the centrality of sexual and reproductive health and rights to the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment. In addition, it is centered on the principle that women’s agency is essential to realizing reproductive rights.
