This article addresses SDGs 3 and 5 by analysing data from India's 2015–16 National Family Health Survey, showing that women who experienced spousal physical violence during pregnancy were more likely to use female-controlled than male-controlled spacing contraception, and less likely to use male-controlled than no contraception. The data suggests that antenatal and postpartum contraceptive counselling should accommodate the needs of women facing spousal physical violence, by providing female-controlled rather than partner-dependent contraceptive methods (eg, the pill or IUD).
This book chapter advances SDG 3, 5, and 10 through its examination of structural racism in the provision of health care services to black women in racially segregated black communities
This chapter addresses SDG5, SDG10, and SDG16 by critically examining the concept of social essentialism and its adverse consequences for justice and equality, particularly around issues of race and gender.
This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.
Whereas numerous studies have documented the multiple forms of physical, sexual, and psychological violence experienced by women, a thorough characterization of the abuses experienced by asylum-seeking women in the United States has not yet been undertaken. Contributing to SDGs 5 and 16, the authors' analysis of the affidavits for 85 cisgender, female asylum seekers who applied for forensic medical evaluations through a student-run asylum clinic, reveals a life-long pattern of multiple types of VAW inflicted by multiple perpetrators.
This article addresses SDGs 3 and 5 by showing that married adolescent girls in Niger experiencing intimate partner violence or reproductive coercion were more likely to use family planning without their husbands' knowledge. These findings have important implications for programmes and policies that aim to increase family planning uptake through greater engagement with male partners, as this approach could undermine the autonomy of young women.

This study contributes to SDG 5. It reveals continued segregation of women in tourism employment across the economies, but also highlights national cultural barriers and intersectionality which affect women's employment and progression in tourism employment. Human resource management strategies, policy interventions, and implications to reduce gender segregation, increase representation in management, and provide equal employment opportunities are presented.

This paper is part of a Lancet Series on violence against women and girls and addresses SDGs 3 and 5 by highlighting the crucial role that health systems must play in reducing, preventing, and eliminating all forms of violence against women, as part of a multisectoral response comprising health-care providers, health policy makers and health programme planners, clinicians, and public health officials.

This paper is part of a Lancet Series on violence against women and girls, and addresses SDGs 3 and 5 by reviewing the evidence base for a broad range of interventions aimed at reducing various forms of gender-based violence, from intimate partner violence and sexual assault to female genital mutilation and child marriage. The paper highlights the need for greater investment into violence prevention research and evaluation of programmes focusing on low-income and middle-income countries, as the majority of high-quality evidence is skewed towards high-income countries.
This journal article advances SDG 5 and 12 by explaining that with female names, voices and characters, artificially intelligent Virtual Personal Assistants such as Alexa, Cortana, and Siri appear to be decisively gendered female. This gendering of VPAs as female may pose a societal harm, insofar as they reproduce normative assumptions about the role of women as submissive and secondary to men.
