ABSTRACT
The article presents the findings of a report UN Women, a new United Nations (UN) women's agency on access to justice and adequate reproductive health services for women. The report reveals that women still lack equality laws when it comes to access to justice and reproductive health services. Another report argues why women are still denied control over their bodies, denied a voice in decision-making, and denied protection from violence.
