An Important Message from Our Department Head Regarding Susanne Klausen’s October 31 Reproductive Justice Conference
Congratulations to Susanne Klausen on Monday’s reproductive justice conference, which featured an array of fascinating presenters from across the globe. I was happy to see such a nice turn-out at Foster, and I understand that many others joined via livestream (though I heard there was a problem in that we did not see any of the questions in the chat). I read an email from an instructor in Greece who saw the conference advertised on Twitter and brought their entire class to the event (online). It’s great to see the conference having such a broad reach. I suspect that the resulting book will also garner great visibility for the important RJ work we are doing here at Penn State.
Along the lines of reproductive justice, if you haven’t see this article from yesterday’s Inside Higher Ed, take a look when you have time: Lack of abortion access is public health crisis (opinion) (insidehighered.com). Clearly, there is a lot of work to do.
