Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies will be hosting a Reproductive Justice Symposium on March 10 and 11. The Symposium is the culmination of 2022-2023 GSFS programming that has included two modules exploring the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade.

On Friday, March 10, student exhibits will be featured from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in CELA (A Level of Mudd Center). The exhibits will highlight student research and creative work that centers on reproductive justice. 

There will be a roundtable discussion on Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Craig Lecture Hall. The discussion will feature invited experts whose work addresses sexual and reproductive health and justice from a variety of multidisciplinary perspectives. 

A Pop-up School will be held on Saturday, March 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in CELA (A Level of Mudd Center).  Classes offered will include topics such as “Not All Religions: An Interfaith Lens on Reproductive Justice,” “Reproductive Justice 101,” and “Parenting with Pride: An Unconventional Guide to Having Children.”

Invited seminar leaders for the Pop-up School include: Chris Barcelos (UMass Boston, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies), Margaret Velto ’22 and Tory Sparks ’17 (both former GSFS majors working in public and reproductive health), Jordyn Close (Ohio Women’s Alliance), Ash Williams, the Oberlin Doula Collective, the Oberlin Reproductive Justice Alliance, and the MRC.
