Whose Body? Whose Choice? Contraception, Abortion, and Reproductive Justice in the U.S.
Eugene Lang College Lib Arts: History
"This course will study the history of contraception, abortion, and reproductive justice in the United States. The course will begin with an overview of the available means for controlling reproduction prior to the twentieth century, continuing with the founding of the modern birth control movement in the early 1900s, and finally studying debates over reproductive justice that ensued in the era of Roe v. Wade (1973-2022). Using a cultural history approach, attention will be paid to the differential ways that access to reproductive healthcare have affected people based on gender, race, geography, age, socio-economic class, ability, and religion, and will focus on activist movements for reproductive justice."
