Wendy Harcourt reviews some of the major concerns around reproductive rights and health from a wide range of cultural, social and economic settings based on a series of dialogues held by the Society for International Development in 2001-2. She shows how women are shaping and resisting globalization through innovative strategies as well as ways in which women are strengthening alliances for gender equality and reproductive health and rights.

Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
This journal issue is based on the outcome of a series of dialogues hosted by the Society for International Development with different women’s NGOs and supported by UNFPA1 in support of the International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action. The dialogues2 looked at women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights within the context of the broader cultural, economic, political and social environment. The aim of the dialogues was to analyse the geopolitical complexities that determine the changes needed for legal, economic and political institutions to deliver good quality and comprehensive sexual and reproductive health for women, particularly those in poor communities, in order for them to be able to exercise their reproductive rights.
