Carasa_02_web

From April 15th to June 10th, the Hatcher Graduate Library North Display cases will house an exhibit which provides a historical context for the emergence and antecedents of reproductive justice. Given that women’s lives have never been reducible to one dimension of their reproductive health, this exhibit traces a longer history of reproductive justice, illustrating many facets of experiences, debates, and policies related to pregnancy, birth, birth control, and raising children.

The exhibit is held in conjunction with the conference, Reproductive Justice: Advocates, Academics, Activists in Ann Arbor, a Michigan Meeting.The exhibit has materials from the following collections: Bentley Historical Library, Joseph A. Labadie Collection, Hatcher Graduate Library Special Collections, Taubman Health Sciences Library and the Law Library.

Make sure not to miss a panel discussion  about this wonderful exhibit on May 29th, 2013 from 4:30-6 PM.
