Please join Chancellor's Professor Michele Goodwin for an engaging conversation on Protecting Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in Times of Political Crisis. Professor Goodwin will read an excerpt from her newly released book Policing the Womb: Invisible Women and the Criminalization of Motherhood.
Policing The Womb brings to life the chilling ways in which women have become the targets of secretive state surveillance of their pregnancies.  Professor Goodwin expands the reproductive health and rights debate beyond abortion to include how legislators increasingly turn to criminalizing women for miscarriages, stillbirths, and threatening the health of their pregnancies.  In this timely book, Professor Goodwin brings to light how the unrestrained efforts to punish and police women's reproduction has led to the United States being the deadliest country in the developed world for pregnant women.
Our featured guests will be Anthony Romero, Executive Director of the ACLU, Dahlia Lithwick, author, journalist, Senior Editor, SlateKathy Spillar, Executive Editor Ms. magazine and Co-Founder and Executive Director, Feminist Majority Foundation, and Lizz Winstead, Founder/Chief Creative Officer at Abortion Access Front, co-creator, The Daily Show
