More than a decade ago, three landmark world conferences placed the human rights of women on the international agenda. The first, in Vienna, officially extended the definition of human rights to include a woman's right to self-determination and equality. A year later, in Cairo, this concept was elaborated to deal explicitly with issues of sexuality and procreation. Subsequently, at a conference in Beijing, the international community committed to a wide range of practical interventions to advance women's sexual, social, political, and economic rights. Despite these accomplishments, however, we find ourselves today at an ever more difficult juncture in the struggle to fully realize women's rights as human rights. Complications, such as terrorism and the "war" against it, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the incursion of religious fundamentalism into governments, and the U.S. government's retreat from the international agenda on sexual and reproductive rights have raised questions about the direction of policy implementations and have prevented progress from being straightforward. This timely collection brings together eight wide-reaching and provocative essays that examine the practical and theoretical issues of reproductive health policy and implementation. Contributors, including well-known scholars and policy makers, assess the impact of policies that have been initiated and consider future directions that governments must take in order to translate visionary ideas into actual achievements.

Mainstream counselling in domestic violence often fails to address critical issues, such as gender socialisation processes and the abuse of power that allows violence against women, and focuses primarily on the intra-psychic nature of individual women. In contrast, feminist counselling is an effective alternative model, owing to its ability to address the fundamental correlation of abuse with power. In going beyond the individual, it helps women locate the source of their distress in the larger social context of power and control, manifesting in intimate, interpersonal relationships, and enables them to resist systemic oppression. This volume offers one of the first systematic documentations of feminist psychosocial interventions in India. It situates the issue of domestic violence in the historical context of the women's movement, and examines institutional factors such as family and marriage that perpetuate abuse. Using extensive case studies, it discusses the methods, principles, techniques, skills and procedures followed by feminist organisations across the country, and their role in women's empowerment. The book will serve as a practical reference guide to practitioners such as social workers, counsellors and para-counsellors, health activists, grassroots workers, protection officers and service providers. It will also be useful to scholars and students of psychology, sociology, women's studies, law and public policy.

While sexual violence is an area that is well mapped by feminist scholarship, this volume will focus on transgressive and/or marginalized sexualities. It will bring together writings on India that have highlighted the transgression of norms - of heterosexuality, of feminine and masculine behaviour, of recognizably gendered bodies, that declare ungoverned desire to be illegitimate. Also included is a section of select documents from different sexuality movements in the country. This book is part of the series of "Issues in Indian Feminism". The other books in the series are: "Gender & Caste" edited by Anupama Rao, "Feminism in India" edited by Maitreyee Chaudhuri, "Dowry & Inheritance" edited by Srimati Basu.

The last two decades have witnessed an explosion of research on sexuality as the social sciences have worked to find new ways of understanding a rapidly changing world. Growing concern for issues such as population, women's and men's reproductive health, and the HIV and AIDS pandemic, has since provided new legitimacy for work on sexuality, health and rights. A detailed and up-to-date reference work, the "Routledge Handbook of Sexuality, Health and Rights" provides an authoritative overview of the main issues in the field today. Leading academics and practitioners are brought together to reflect on past, present and future approaches to understanding and promoting sexual health and rights. Divided into nine parts, it covers: pioneering beginnings; language, discourse and sexual categories from sexuality to health; the reproductive imperative; how to have sex in an epidemic; the choreography of sex; the darker side of sex from sexual health to sexual rights; and, struggles for erotic justice. This handbook surveys the state of the discipline and offers an examination and discussion of emerging, controversial and cutting edge areas. It is an essential reference for academics and researchers in the fields of sexuality studies, sexual health and human rights, and offers key reading for more advanced students.
