MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT: This hearing shines a bright light on the status of women’s reproductive and health care access. In recent years, more anti-reproductive rights legislation has been proposed than in the 30 years combined following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling Roe v. Wade. Expert panels cover issues such as violations of women’s reproductive privacy, women’s mass incarceration (and their health behind bars),
access to reproductive health services, domestic violence, online sexual harassment, and the religious objections to medical services.
