Reader on Reproductive Rights and Justice
The Reader represents a non-traditional approach to reproductive rights materials, both in substance and structure. It resists relegating certain topics or marginalized groups (e.g. LGBTQ issues, incarcerated persons) into a chapter buried at the end of the book. Instead, it examines how everyone is affected by laws and policies. Because it has a “reproductive justice” lens, it presumes that people are many things at once—women or men, people of color or white people, affluent or disadvantaged, straight or gay and so on. As a result, all of us live in what Critical Race Scholars call “intersectionality” and as a result, almost everyone has what Joan Tronto calls “partial privilege” and by extension, partial subordination.
