The Long View: Birth Control and Reproduction in America since the Seventeenth Century

Lecture Description

Many contemporary political debates about women’s health assume that birth control is a modern invention, and that the way in which women relate to their health providers is the only way things can or should be. This lecture provides a long view on the subject of birth control and reproduction, putting contemporary debates into a larger context of women’s – including trans women’s – ongoing work to define their relationship to their own bodies.
