You don’t become a woman until you’ve had children. True or not true? What it means to be a man or woman, and the expectations associated with this, influence the sexual and reproductive health and rights of men and women. Where our gender is defined by nature, it also becomes our social ‘gender’, socially constructed and thus subject to change.

Gender inequality is consequently often the cause of a lack of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Sexual and reproductive health and rights consequently help to eliminate inequalitybetween men and women. They are strongly anchored in the new 2030 Agenda for sustainable development under the sustainable development goals 3 on health and 5 on gender equality.
