Monday, Oct. 22 | 4-6 p.m. | Langseth 104
Help us kick off Reproductive Justice Week with a screening and discussion of the 2017 documentary dubbed “the real life Handmaid’s Tale” by Newsweek. The film tells the story of women who have become collateral damage in the aggressive campaign to take control of reproductive health care and to allow states, courts and religious doctrine to govern whether, when and how women will bear children.
The documentary explores the accelerating gains of the crusade to control pregnant women and the fallout that is creating a public health crisis, turning pregnant women into criminals and challenging the constitutional protections of every woman in America.
