'Reproductive Justice: The Politics of Health for Native American Women'

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Engleman Hall - Room B304

A Seminar with Dr. Barbara Gurr

Please come and join us!

In Reproductive Justice, Dr. Barbara Gurr provides the first book-length analysis of Native American women's reproductive healthcare, offers a sustained consideration of the movement for reproductive justice in the United States, and situates this consideration squarely in the lives and communities of Native women. 

Using interviews, archival research, and descriptive policy analysis, Gurr examines reproductive healthcare experiences throughout Indian Country. She focuses on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, shedding much-needed light on Native American women's efforts to access prenatal care, contraception, abortion services, and care after sexual assault.

Dr. Gurr is an assistant professor in residence in the Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program at the University of Connecticut. She holds degrees in sociology and women's studies, including a master's degree in women's studies from SCSU.
