Ordinary Equality

Reproductive Justice

Episode Summary

In 1994, twelve Black women gathered together in a room and redefined the movement for reproductive freedom-- they focused on an intersectional freedom, built an entirely new framework, and called it Reproductive Justice. Today, hosts Jamia Wilson and Kate Kelly take us through the history of the Reproductive Justice movement and the work it’s doing in a system that has ignored the needs of Black women for far too long.
