“Sexual and Reproductive Freedom for Asian American Women.” In Asian American Women: Issues, Concerns, and Responsive Human and Civil Rights Advocacy, (2003)

This chapter is about Asian American women and the obstacles that stand in the way of their sexual freedom. The chapter talks about how speaking about sex is a very taboo subject in most Asian American communities so there is very little talk about Asian American women’s reproductive and sexual life. Many resources are not culturally competent and do not include such things as squat birthing, which is an option among the Asian American community.  The chapter ends by making recommendations.
