Editorial Reviews

Signs

Many of these writers discuss phenomena that, if taken seriously by demographers, would have important influence in their approach to research and policy…They raise the issue of whether women really have choice in reproductive decisions or in family planning method given existing social, especially gender, inequalities and the hegemony of the population control movement.
