Reproductive Justice as Human Rights

Westhampton/will/WGSS Womxn’s History Month Speaker

Loretta Ross is the co-founder and former National Coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective. She is the co-author of Reproductive Justice: An Introduction and Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Justice. Reproductive Justice, a term coined by African American women following the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, utilizes a human rights framework to look at reproductive oppression, sterilization abuse, immigration restrictions, gun culture, rape culture, the prison-to-school pipeline, and more. Her talk engages all aspects of Reproductive Justice, the primary framework being used to move beyond the paralyzing debates of abortion politics.
