Provides women - and men - of all ages with a range of reflections and opinions that will encourage them to transform antagonistic power relations and discrimination in order to work towards a model of relations based on solidarity, reciprocity and equity. Covers a wide range of issues such as women's sexual citizenship, sexual rights as human rights, a historic panorama of female sexuality through the 20th century, the issue of prostitution, and redefining women's "sexual problems". Addresses women's demands that their human and sexual rights be recognized and respected, including lesbian, gay, and bisexual rights, as well as young people's need to have access to sex education and information with which to experience their sexualities safely and joyfully.
