{mosimage}This is a summary report of a study workshop on ‘Sexuality and Violence against Women: Access to Justice and Asia-Pacific Consultation with the UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women’, held in Jakarta, Indonesia. The report is an attempt to draw attention to some of the critical issues around sexuality and sexual violence in the Asia-Pacific region by entering public discourse. It also attempts to deepen understanding of the contexts which are aggravating these problems. And, by sharing positive experiences, it hopes to sustain these gains by strengthening women’s activism in other parts of the Asia-Pacific.
