Special Issue Information

Women and men have distinct biological roles in reproduction. Both women and men provide gametes that create the embryo and the resulting fetus. Women then carry the fetus during pregnancy and provide nutrition at the beginning of life. This asymmetry in women’s and men’s biological roles has led to a spectrum of social misperceptions, medical inequalities, psychological challenges, and research gaps, which are detrimental to women’s and men’s health. In this Special Issue, we plan to publish research articles, reviews, and opinion pieces that touch directly or indirectly on women’s reproduction. We look forward to contributions from biological, medical, social, psychological, ethical, or any other relevant perspectives.
