Sexual Rights

Refers to the recognition that all people have the right to pursue a safe and satisfying sexual life, to have control over and decide freely on all matters related to their sexuality, and to have access to the services, education, and information, including comprehensive sexuality education, necessary to do so. Sexual rights have also referred to the individual civil rights that ensure women’s ability to have control over, make choices about, and access the appropriate health care having to do with reproduction and the reproductive parts of their bodies.
