Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR)
DAWN's second substantive global analysis, Reproductive Rights and Population: Feminist Voices from the South, was produced for the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPC), held in 1994. The analysis illustrated DAWN's niche role in providing historical analysis, conceptual clarity and strategic direction to organizations working to secure gains for women in the areas of sexual and reproductive health and rights and development. It broke new ground by placing the issues of population and reproductive health and rights within a broader development framework that is informed by feminist political economy, holistic, sustainable and empowering for women. With the interface of neocons and neolibs in global politics that result to intolerance and limitations on a number of human rights, DAWN's work has also focused on the need to surface and interlink sexual rights issues more prominently in its south-based social equality-political democracy-economic justice analytical frame.
