Lecture: "Invoking a Human Right to Abortion in Mexico"

Thursday, October 20, 2016
9:30am – 10:45am

Storrs Campus
Class of 1947 Classroom, Babbidge Library

Feminists have historically looked to the nation-state as the guarantor of women’s rights against ecclesiastical and familial institutions. In Mexico, however, the growing global influence of human rights has led to cleavages among feminist activists about the best strategies for achieving women’s rights including, in particular, access to abortion.
