  pdf Written Out: How Sexuality is Used to Attack Women's Organizing (2005)

Written and researched by Cynthia Rothschild. Edited and with contributions by Scott Long and Susana T. Fried. International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission and Center for Women's Global Leadership, 2005; 188 pages. ISBN 0-9711412-3-1. US$15

Originally published in 2000, Written Out: How Sexuality is Used to Attack Women’s Organizing uses a human rights lens to describe a phenomenon that many human rights defenders and other activists face in all regions: “sexuality-baiting,” or the practice of discrediting and controlling people, organizations and political agendas through strategic use of allegations related to sexuality. Written Out has been updated to include an analysis of the current political climate and recent experiences of sexuality-baiting directed at women because of their political work, who they are, or who they are seen to be.

In this revised report, which includes a section on baiting within the United Nations, the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) again show how attacks on women’s sexualities threaten all women’s basic human rights to bodily integrity, to expression and to association—as well as undermine essential values of equality and dignity.
