Abstract: The International Centre for Research on Women (ICRW)’s Resourcing Reproductive Rights project is a retrospective analysis of the funding landscape of the last decade, focused on abortion in India. The study explores the relationship of funding and work on sex selection with efforts focused on promoting abortion rights and services. Broadly, all key stakeholders pointed to continuing moving forward the agenda of women’s empowerment by focusing on four key areas: improving access to safe abortion, reducing gender bias, advocating for progression in public policy, and influencing community behaviors and practices for the long term.
