ABSTRACT

There is a long queue of people wanting to have conversations about sexuality and its relevance to the future work of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women). Many of those people want to focus on sexuality and development in relation to reproductive health concerns, or education.4

Another strand of work has focused on sexual rights-to bodily integrity and freedom from violence; to abortion; to accurate and nonjudgmental information about sex; rights for sexual minorities, etc.5 These are crucial conversations, and they require urgent action if UN Women is to succeed as a feminist policy site.
