Join American Experience for a virtual PAST FORWARD conversation exploring the history of reproductive rights and future of bodily autonomy in America.
Panelists will explore the impact of the recent Dobbs decision on public health and constitutional law, the complex history of the struggle for reproductive rights, the risks women and childbearing people take to secure bodily autonomy, the disproportionate impact of historical and current laws on poor women and women of color, and what might happen next.
Renée M. Landers: Professor of law at Suffolk University, and the faculty director of the Health and Biomedical Law Concentration, and the Master of Science in Law Life Sciences Program.
Cathleen Kaveny: Professor of Law and Theology at Boston College.
The conversation will be moderated by Adriane Lentz-Smith, an associate professor of history at Duke University.
