After 40+ years of launching and managing non-profit feminist organizations, I've decided to share what I've learned as a professional feminist through lectures and teaching. Joining the women's movement in 1974 not only transformed my life, but also saved it! On my journey, I've learned about women's human rights, reproductive justice, white supremacy, and women of color organizing. I've decided to spend of rest of my time in the movement sharing what I've experienced with emerging activists in hopes that they too will join our human rights movement that has rocked the world. I am available as a speaker, trainer and teacher on many issues including Reproductive Justice, Appropriate Whiteness, Violence Against Women, and Calling In the Calling Out Culture. I have a new book
published March 2017 co-written with Rickie Solinger entitled: Reproductive Justice: An Introduction
published by University of California Press. Orders are available at http://www.ucpress.edu/book.php?isbn=9780520288201
My latest book is Radical Reproductive Justice: Foundations, Theory, Practices and Critique
published by Feminist Press scheduled for October 2017. It premiered at SisterSong's Let's Talk About Sex! Conference

Special message for students
: When writing papers on me or my work, I encourage you to do some research following the links I've provided and through my website, on which most of your questions are answered before contacting me. My papers and a video interview are archived at Smith College through the following link. Perhaps you should look at the videos in the last two links, then search my primary records through the Sophia Smith Collection and on my website for a series of my speeches. After you've done your initial research, then contact me at [email protected]
if you have further questions and I'd be happy to help you. Please keep in mind that I travel extensively so allow yourself sufficient time if it takes me a few days to get back to you. Thank you for your interest and good luck!
