Description

The International conference on Population and Development (ICPD) at Cairo brought about a paradigm shift in the way population is conceptualized. This involves going beyond maternal health and family planning, to the broader framework of reproductive health and rights. How has Indian fared with the paradigm shift? Is this about population control by other means? Is it about the social roots of illness, disease and death among women? This revelatory collection of essays by journalists explores a range of issues-from the quinacrine sterilization scandal, to the rip-off that is the assisted reproduction industry, to the declining age of marriage among Muslim girls in Malabar. Winners of the Panos Reproductive Health Media Fellowship, these journalists reveal how issues in women’s health are deeply imbricated in the lives of Indian women.
