Description

Female sterilization is the 2nd most commonly
used method of contraception in US, and occurs disproportionately among
low-income women and women of color.
This presentation will explore the intersections of socioeconomic status,
race/ethnicity, and sterilization decisions with attention to the broader
social and historical context in which the fertility of vulnerable women has
not always been valued.
