Sexual and reproductive rights (SRR) advocacy is usually framed as a struggle against patriarchal ideologies and gender stereotypes. I argue that this dyad needs to be expanded to include other normalized frameworks, such as the dominant androcentric economic paradigm and the biomedical paradigm, which act in synergy with patriarchal ideologies to create laws and public policies affecting women’s SRR. Using case examples of how these synergies occur in different contexts, I argue that without such expansion, the SRR movement continually finds itself manipulated and trapped into a posture of resisting different hostile forces.
