Diferent day and room. Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

Book launch, edited by Christabelle Sethna and Gayle Davis, JHUP 2019

Professor Christabelle Sethna (Women’s Studies Institute, University of Ottawa)

Professor Christabelle Sethna will present her new edited book Abortion across Borders. The book focuses on travel across domestic and international boundaries to terminate a pregnancy and it brings together a cadre of authors to examine how restrictive policies force women to move both within and across national borders in order to reach abortion providers, often at great expense, over long distances and with significant safety risks. Taking historical and contemporary perspectives, contributors examine the situation in regions that include Texas, Prince Edward Island, Ireland, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Eastern Europe. Throughout, they take a feminist intersectional approach to transnational travel and access to abortion services that is sensitive to inequalities of gender, race, and class in reproductive health care.
