Bodily autonomy is the power and agency to make choices about your body without fear of violence or having someone else decide for you.

A serious lack of bodily autonomy has had far-reaching implications much beyond the profound harm to individual women and girls that include potentially depressing economic productivity, undercutting skills, and extra costs to health care and judicial systems.

Nearly half the women from 57 developing countries do not have the right to decide regarding their bodies including using contraception, seeking health care, or even on their sexuality.

Every day, tens of thousands of girls have their health, rights and futures stolen. Some are subjected to female genital mutilation. Some are forced into “marriages” as children, and still others are neglected or starved, simply because they are female.

At least 19 harmful practices, ranging from dowry related violence to crimes in the name of so-called honour, are considered human rights violations. The Report focuses on the three most prevalent forms: child marriage, son preference and Gender Biased Sex Selection (GBSS), and female genital mutilation (FGM).
