Editorial Reviews

Review

“A valuable contribution.”
-Feminist Collections



“This book is an important contribution to the growing reexamination of the women's health movement. This is a useful book, an interesting book, a book that tells our history.”
-Politics, Social Movements, and The State



“Nelson presents the tip of the iceberg of the history of the involvement of women of color, specifically, African-American women and Latinas in the movements for rights.”
-Conscience



“A very fresh and strong contribution to emerging scholarship on the history of reproductive rights activism in the U.S.”
-Loretta Ross,Executive Director of the National Center for Human Rights Education

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I learned a great deal from this book. It does not offer a re-hash of the debate over legalized abortion; rather it sets forth findings from original research, explaining a variety of perspectives that developed among women of color. The book offers a fascinating history of forced or coerced sterization, and also traces the evolution of feminism in the black and Puerto Rican communities, along with the conflicts that developed within each group. Dr. Nelson consistently ties in national legislative and judicial developments, showing the effect of those changes on the activist politics of the day. Overall a carefully researched, tightly written book--will take its place as an academic page-turner, for anyone interested in gender politics of the twentieth century.
