Hungarian 'women's health': stigma and coercion

Political and media institutions in Hungary are promoting a coercive culture of intervention in female bodies under the banner of self-care.

"Different political and social actors of course establish their own media discourses concerning what a woman should do and who she should be. Yet both the above subject positions have the same effect: they erase the potential for women to name reproductive labour as reproductive labour, and both enable technological interventions and state surveillance to be interpreted as ‘self-care’. 
Just as media does not exist in a bubble and visual representations both depend on and produce social inclusions and exclusions, technology also embodies and perpetuates social norms—media, bodies, selves are always in a complex entanglement. Both strategies of control and strategies of resistance must therefore work with this new notion of the self as fundamentally mediated."
