About the product

This report looks into the social, institutional, economic and legal forces that determine how much power a woman has over her body and to make her own choices, the extent to which she has access to quality, non-discriminatory information and services, and how gender inequality underpins all of these. The report also analyzes retrospective data to measure bodily autonomy for girls and draws on case studies on bodily autonomy among marginalized groups: LGBTIQ+, indigenous and disability communities.
