Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Womens bodies have always been have always been the focal point of patriarchy. Liberals and conservatives alike have both worked to ensure women dont have bodily autonomy. As a result of patriarchy, womens knowledge of and control over their own bodies has been wrested from us. We are forced to depend on male legislators, a male-dominated medical establishment, and Big Pharma, and woman-centered knowledge and practices, like self-abortion, menstrual extraction, other alternative forms of birth control, and woman-centered birth practices, are no longer common knowledge. While feminism has fought for womens reproductive rights " for access to things like abortion and the pill " Mary Lou Singleton says we need to look beyond rights, and towards sovereignty.

Mary Lou is a midwife, nurse practitioner, reproductive sovereignty activist, and founder of Personhood for Women.
