One of the most private decisions a woman can make, abortion is also one of the most contentious topics in American civic life. To pry open the silence surrounding this public issue, Carol Sanger distinguishes between abortion privacy, a form of nondisclosure based on a woman’s desire to control personal information, and abortion secrecy, a woman’s defense against the many harms of disclosure.

All are welcome to attend this event.
