Feminist Public Square Book Club

November 17 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

We are delighted to announce that our next Feminist Public Square book club event will take place on Wednesday, November 17th at 7:00 PM ET and will feature University of California, Irvine Chancellor’s Professor and award-winning author Dr. Michele Bratcher Goodwin, who will discuss her critically-acclaimed book, Policing the Womb: Invisible Women and the Criminalization of Motherhood.

Given her extensive experience as a writer for Ms. Magazine and her service as an executive committee member of the American Civil Liberties Union – Goodwin is well versed in a wide range of NOW’s core issues. As Kathy Spillar, executive director of the Feminist Majority Foundation praised, “Michele Goodwin’s Policing the Womb is a prerequisite to understanding the very real dangers posed by punitive state laws enacted under the guise of protecting women’s health, but which have instead criminalized women’s conduct during pregnancy, harmed women’s and girls’ health, and allowed unimaginable state interventions into women’s reproductive lives.” After you finish reading Policing the Womb and have quelled your anger, you will have no choice but to join one of the many local and national efforts to fight for women’s full constitutional and fundamental human rights.”

Pick up Policing the Womb: Invisible Women and the Criminalization of Motherhood today and join us for a thought-provoking discussion between National NOW President Christian F. Nunes and Dr. Michele Bratcher Goodwin including a live Q&A. Register to join us on November 17th.

We hope to see you there!
