A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
In the United States, 3 out of 10 women have abortions — despite existing barriers to the procedure — and opponents exist on both ends of the political spectrum. In Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights, feminist poet Katha Pollitt analyzes a woman’s “right to choose.” According to her, the debate has gotten so out of hand that this private issue has become a completely public one. By weaving together personal perspective, historical fact, and individual testimony, Pollitt offers an in-depth look at this controversial subject. She’ll give insight into why opponents have gained momentum in recent years and why this isn’t just a women’s issue, but one for people of all genders and ages. Pollitt, a second-wave feminist, is the author of Virginity or Death! and a columnist for The Nation.
