Join WGH for a tour of the Schlesinger Library exhibit: “The Age of Roe: The Past, Present, and Future of Abortion in America” – Wednesday, March 1st, 2023, 4pm
Schlesinger describes the exhibition as rethinking “… what Roe has meant to American society, culture, and politics. It tells the story of abortion in the United States, from criminalization to constitutionalization and back again, through the eyes of those who created and defended Roe and those who mourned and unmade it, those at the center of politics and those at the margins. Battles over Roe upended party politics, changed medical practice, and divided faith communities. Roe offered lessons about what it meant to treat abortion as a right or to rely on the courts to achieve change. Conflicting visions of justice—for people of color, for women, for life in the womb—shaped what Roe meant”. WGH students, staff, and faculty will gather for a tour of this exhibit with faculty lead Professor Elizabeth Janiak.
