|Publication Date||March 2012|

Worldwide, more than one fourth of all pregnancies are unintended. Emergency contraception, which could lower this number, continues to spark political controversy worldwide. In this edited volume, authors explore how emergency contraception has been received, interpreted, and politicized. Through the in-depth examination of the journey of EC in 16 countries, chapters in this book reveal the ways that a global reproductive health technology is inflected with local cultural meaning and simultaneously influenced by challenges that condition the introduction of a new technology.
