Intersections of Indigenous Feminism and Native Women’s Reproductive Healthcare—by Abbie Bandstra, Native American Studies Master’s Candidate
As feminism advances in both theory and policy, it is important to consider that reproductive healthcare has specific implications for minority women and that particularly, reproductive justice for American Indian and Alaska Native women concerns itself with many concepts, issues and ideas not necessarily a part of mainstream discourse. Join graduate student Abbie Bandstra for a presentation and discussion that considers how Indigenous feminism can help us to understand what is at stake for Native women in questions of reproductive justice within the healthcare system and how to advocate for meaningful change in these arenas.
