“Sometimes a private matter needs public support:” Reproductive Justice in Comparative Context: Ireland/US

A Special Talk with Beth Sundstrom

The Begemann – Gordon Lecture Series “Sometimes a private matter needs public support:” Reproductive Justice in Comparative Context: Ireland/US A Special Talk with Beth Sundstrom

In this lecture, Dr. Sundstrom will discuss the role of women’s health activism in Ireland and the U.S. to build a reproductive justice movement. She will highlight the understudied roles of women’s heath activists, who have redefined women’s health and reproduction, making them central concerns in Irish society and government. Dr. Sundstrom will share research that emerged from her Fulbright grant in Ireland to examine gender, science and technology in the global movement for women’s autonomy. The Irish case illustrates how women’s narratives and stories served as the central focus of the reproductive justice movement, engaging with a variety of media outlets, particularly social media, to spread their message. This analysis challenges the nature/culture dualism and highlights the possibilities of empowerment through technology in women’s health.
