BRIDGE Gender and Development in Brief, Issue 18, ‘Sexuality’

Sexuality can bring misery through sexual violence, HIV/AIDS, maternal mortality, female genital mutilation, or marginalisation of those who break the rules, such as non-macho men, single women, widows who re-marry, sex workers, people with same-sex sexualities, and transgender people. Sexuality can also bring joy, affirmation, intimacy and wellbeing. How can we make possible more joy and less misery? This ‘Cutting Edge Pack’ hopes to inspire thinking on this question – with an overview report outlining key issues on gender, sexuality and sexual rights in the current climate; a supporting resources collection providing summaries of key texts, tools, case studies and contacts of organisations in this field; and a Gender and Development In Brief newsletter with three short articles on the theme.
