A growing literature on feminists' engagement in body politics in the development process charts narratives that call for reproductive rights, sexuality and embodiment to be acknowledged in the development agenda in debates around women's agency, gender equality, health, population and environment (Petchesky 2002; Cornwall and Jolly 2008; Harcourt 2009; Lind 2010; Truong and Harcourt 2014; Jolly, Cornwall and Hawkins 2013). These studies show how body politics has brought issues of domestic violence; rape as a weapon of war; denial of sexual and reproductive rights; sexual oppression of women, children, homosexuals and transgender people; racism; and ageism into development policy and projects (Hartmann 1994; Lind 2010; Wieringa and Sivori 2012; Baksh and Harcourt 2015).
