Sexual Rights at the Human Rights Council 40

The 40th session of the UN Human Rights Council took place from February 25th to March 22rd, 2019. All of which the Sexual Rights Initiative (SRI) was engaged with during the session. 

For the first time, the Human Rights Council recognizes ‘the rights to bodily integrity and autonomy’ in a resolution.

Language on the ‘right to sexual and reproductive health’ included in a resolution for the third session in a row

For the first time, the Human Rights Council recognizes ‘the rights to bodily integrity and autonomy’ in a resolution.

Language on the ‘right to sexual and reproductive health’ included in a resolution for the third session in a row

The Sexual Rights Initiative, the Center for Reproductive Rights, CREA, Women Enabled International, ARROW, the Coalition of African Lesbians, Akahatá, Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, and the Federation for Women and Family Planning applaud South Africa’s leadership in bringing forth a resolution on discrimination against women and girls in sports that directly addresses the human rights violations arising from the intersections of racism and harmful gender norms. We also welcome the Human Rights Council resolution on rights of the child, but regret the Human Rights Council’s inability to recognize the autonomy, legal capacity and right to non-discrimination of children with disabilities, including to ensure that their sexual and reproductive rights are respected, protected and fulfilled.
