Webinar -- Attacks on Abortion Rights: The Road Ahead for Reproductive Rights
Thursday, October 14, 2021 | 5-6 p.m.
Access to abortion is very much at risk right now -- and not only for women in Mississippi and Texas, where draconian restrictions have been enacted into law. The Supreme Court this term will review Mississippi's law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and the result could mean an end to abortion rights as we have known them since Roe v. Wade because the law of the land in 1973. Join our webinar for a discussion on these two state laws and how they impact reproductive justice.

Unique within the legal academy, the center seeks to apply feminist insights to legal practice and the policy arena. In particular, the center examines how feminist theory can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine and play a role in policy debates and implementation. The center has faculty affiliates from throughout the university. In addition to holding conferences and regular colloquia on emerging legal areas that intersect with feminism, the center sponsors the Special Topics in Applied Feminism course and helps students plan for careers in feminist advocacy.
