This anthology assembles two decades’ of work initiated by SisterSong Women of Color Health Collective, creators of the human rights-based “reproductive justice” framework to move beyond polarized pro-choice/pro-life debates. Rooted in Black feminism and built on intersecting identities, this revolutionary framework asserts a woman's right to have children, to not have children, and to parent and provide for the children they have.

"Radical Reproductive Justice closes the theory/practice gap by placing the transforming principle of reproductive justice within the working knowledge of anyone who reads it. A game changer." —Dr. Willie Parker, author of Life's Work: A Moral Argument for Choice

"An essential read for anyone who cares about justice and political activism." —Rye Young, Executive Director, Third Wave Fund

“This timely anthology brings together theory, practice, and poetry to celebrate and expand the intergenerational struggle to attain reproductive justice.” —Jael Silliman, author of Recalling Jewish Calcutta
