Involuntary Sterilization of HIV-Positive Women as Intersectional Discrimination
Congratulations to Dr. Ronli Sifris of Monash University’s Faculty of Law, whose forthcoming article in Human Rights Quarterly is already available online through SSRN:
Involuntary Sterilization of HIV-Positive Women: An Example of Intersectional Discrimination
forthcoming in (2015) 37(2) Human Rights Quarterly
This article considers the involuntary sterilization of HIV-positive women through the lens of intersectional discrimination. It begins by examining the international human right to be free from discrimination before considering involuntary sterilization as a form of discrimination against women. The article then draws on the example of the involuntary sterilization of HIV-positive women to make the point that, in order to truly understand the insidious nature of involuntary sterilization, it must be viewed through the prism of intersectional discrimination.
