Reproductive Politics in the United States is a concise, accessible and engaging introduction to what continues to be a contentious and polorizing topic in the United States.
Focussing on the current debates and controversies, myths and realities of reproductive justice, this text seeks to examine the historical, social and cultural forces that shape those politics. Making use of an explicitly feminist framework, the textbook analyzes how the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and other markers of difference are implicated in protest and policy.
This is a primer for Women’s and Gender Studies students, and for those coming to the topic for the first time.
