Reproductive Justice and Domestic and Sexual Violence

The reproductive justice framework has a lot to offer movements that are working for a just and violence free society. The materials below specifically highlight the connections between reproductive oppression and domestic and sexual violence, and demonstrate that the work towards advancing reproductive justice and the work to eliminate violence against women are intricately interconnected. Resources below are divided into categories including Facts for Advocates, Reproductive Coercion (a form of domestic and sexual violence where behavior concerning reproductive health and choices is used to maintain power, control, and domination within a relationship), and Violence During Pregnancy. More information on the linkages between domestic and sexual violence and health can be found in the Special Collection: Domestic Violence and Health Care and NSVRC’s Healthcare Initiative Collection.
