Women and Policy

Women and Policy

Some genders are more equal than others...

Imagine laws specifically telling men what to do with their bodies, different legal treatment, different obligations. Imagine systems, supported by policy, that make difficult for a specific gender to compete in equal conditions. Exactly.

We know a lot of the topics are controversial. Abortion, prostitution, subrogate maternity... so we want to explore them further, provide content that helps to understand it better by looking at different positions.
