Gender equality : dimensions of women's equal citizenship
This chapter examines the tensions between state natalist policies and women's citizenship rights, including their reproductive rights. My thesis is that while state natlist policies need not violate women's other citizen rights, they often do so in fact, especially when they draw on unacknowledged notions of women's citizenship duties. Careful analysis is necessary, accordingly, to assess whether a particular policy measure is likely to violate reproductive rights or to reproduce gender, thus violating other citizenship rights, in a particular context.
