Educational Psychology (EPSY) 203 — Social Issues Group Dialogues: Reproductive Justice
Credit: 1 hour
Understanding the journey to reproductive justice requires the understanding that although reproductive justice is a collective goal, it is a highly personalized experience. Because no two experiences are alike, our actions moving forward need to encompass everyone; policy needs to protect all people in various scenarios because each experience is valid and everyone deserves to experience bodily autonomy that is protected under the law. In this class, we will examine the linkage between intersectionality and other social issues and how that impacts reproductive justice on a historical and personal level. Bodily autonomy has been politicized and fought for through various forms throughout history; together, we will explore the ways in which bodily autonomy has been defined, sought after, and inhibited. This course is taught by Amie Baumeister, WRC Assistant Director, Gender Equity, and Kara Lawrence, WRC Advocacy and Wellness Coordinator.
