Sex Education Helps Young Be Responsible
The Star, Philippines, 2/29/2012

Without access to sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health services, adolescents and youth, especially girls, face daunting reproductive and sexual health problems: unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions, maternal mortality and morbidity, violence, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV, exploitation, and discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation. All these have prompted the Federation of Reproductive Health Associations Malaysia (FRHAM), a leading sexual and reproductive health NGO, to develop a comprehensive module called Reproductive Health of Adolescent Module.

Privacy Right is no Cover for Unlawful Act: Counsel
The Hindu - New Delhi, India, 2/29/2012

When there is a conflict between individual right on homosexuality and societal interest in morality, the latter will prevail, counsel Harshvir Pratap Sharma argued in the Supreme Court strongly opposing the Delhi High Court judgment de-criminalising homosexuality. Mr. Sharma told the Bench that fundamental rights should not be read in isolation. They should be read along with the Directive Principles of State Policy. Pointing out that India is a country of different religions and cultural identities, counsel said the Supreme Court, while deciding the question of legalising homosexuality between two consenting adults, should take this factor into consideration.

Film Focuses on Lesbian Life
Viet Nam News - Ha Noi, Viet Nam, 2/29/2012

The first documentary film about lesbian communities in Viet Nam titled Duong Nao Di Toi Bien (Which Way to the Sea) has been screened at the second ASEAN Lifescape Festival in Thailand. However, the 35-minute documentary, produced by the Centre for Studies and Applied Sciences in Gender, Family, Women and Adolescents (CSAGA) hadn`t been presented widely at home because sexual issues were not talked about openly in Vietnamese society, said Nguyen Van Anh, director of the centre. The piece features the lives of four lesbian couples who represent lesbian communities in three regions in Viet Nam. It also explores how Vietnamese women cope after coming out of the closet.

Child Protection Unit Mooted for Victims of Sexual Abuse
The Times of India - Kochi, India, 2/27/2012

The rights of child abuse victims in the state are not protected due to the absence of a child-friendly legal network. Most of the law machinery here, be it the police or the judicial system, are not sensitized to the required level while dealing with children. This was a common perception expressed at a meeting of experts to discuss the setting up of a protection system against child abuse organized by the Kochi-headquartered Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) Kerala.
