About Radical Reproductive Justice:

This anthology assembles two decades’ of work initiated by SisterSong Women of Color Health Collective, creators of the human rights-based “reproductive justice” framework to move beyond polarized pro-choice/pro-life debates. Rooted in Black feminism and built on intersecting identities, this revolutionary framework asserts a woman's right to have children, to not have children, and to parent and provide for the children they have.

Radical Reproductive Justice closes the theory/practice gap by placing the transforming principle of reproductive justice within the working knowledge of anyone who reads it. A game changer.
