Your Call: Women of Color and the reproductive rights movement

Jun 20, 2016

 On the June 20th edition of Your Call, Loretta Ross joins us to discuss the book, Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Rights.

The book retrieves the often forgotten history of reproductive rights organizations formed by women of color in the 1980s and 90s. Loretta Ross, co-founder of SisterSong, helped coin the term reproductive justice, a framework for thinking beyond abortion access. How have women of color pushed the pro-choice movement to organize for a full spectrum of reproductive rights? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Loretta Ross, co-founder of SisterSong and co-author of Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Rights

Melanie Renae Garza, public policy and training coordinator for Access, Women’s Health Justice
