Reproductive Rights World-Wide

      Each year, The Global Engagement Network hosts a forum on a topic of global importance and a day-long conference for students, staff and community members. This year’s topic, which was presented last Saturday, was Reproductive Rights in the 21st Century. The group invited three guest speakers and one Wooster student to share their opinions about reproductive rights around the world.

Wooster anthropology professor Abigail Adams spoke about her experience working and doing research in an abortion clinic in New Mexico. She found that often women having abortions had no choice because their life circumstances made it unfeasible and unrealistic to have a child. The other two speakers were Meredith Raimondo, an associate professor of comparative American studies at Oberlin College and Tina Reynolds, co-founder of the organization Women on the Rise Telling HerStory. Ngozi Cole ’15 wrapped up the conference by discussing the reproductive rights in Sierra Leone, her native country.
