ISSM Webinar on Female sexuality: an important concept?

Female's sexuality has been approached from different angles and has been the focus of intense debate, most of it calling the attention to the gendered nature of sexual expression and how people's sexuality can better be approached from an angle that acknowledges biological explanatory factors as well as socio-cultural framing. With this webinar we aim to address some of the important issues related to female sexuality and the way a gendered evidence-based look at sexual response may help us to deliver better care for those who were born female and identify as women.
