This book offers a wide range of innovative examples from around the world related to fundamental shifts in thinking and the practice of reproductive rights. From popular theater in Nigeria to participatory research in Britain, from role-playing in Cambodia to visualizing reproductive health in Zimbabwe, and from collaborative planning in Egypt to community dialogue in the Andes, these twenty-four chapters reveal the value of transforming approaches to sexual and reproductive wellbeing. All begin with the need to engage women, men, and youth more directly in determining pathways to change, and all highlight both the complexities and the possibilities of making rights real.
