Sexuality education as a political battleground in Latin America

Dr Esther Corona-Vargas

Sexuality has been traditionally considered to belong to the realm of the private, however a multiplicity of studies derived from social, anthropological and historical perspectives, have shown that sexuality is very much a public matter. Since the later part of the XXth Century many NGOs and governments have developed sexuality education programmes that recognize the impact of this education in the social and political life of countries as much as in the individual life of people. At the same time, conservative and fundamentalist forces have also envisaged the possibility of controlling people’s minds and behaviour by intervening in the content and methodology of sexuality education and positioning themselves within Education Ministries.
