Where: Webinar registration link: https://uiowa.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_WKYdydtJQ-GzkzUhFgYb-g

About the talk: Professor Carole Joffe, sociologist and Professor emerita from the University of California, Davis will join Lina-Maria Murillo, Assistant Professor of Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies and History at UI, and Francine Thompson, Executive Director of the Emma Goldman Clinic, to discuss Joffe’s new book Obstacle Course: The Everyday Struggle to Get an Abortion in America.

Prairie Lights is selling copies of the book to benefit the Emma Goldman Clinic.

Since this talk is taking place just a few days after the election and on the heels of Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court, we hope to have a robust conversation on the past, present, and future of abortion provision in the United States from the perspective of scholars and providers in the field.
