“…[A] new report to be launched by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Mar. 16 in New York examines the links between [sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)] and three core aspects of gender equality: social development, economic participation, and participation in political and public life. … Women and girls should have the right and ability to make decisions about their reproductive lives and sexuality, free from violence, coercion, and discrimination. That’s what equality is all about” (3/16).
