Martha Nussbaum Moderates In the Shadow of Roe: Feminist Perspectives on Sex-and-Genetic-Selective Abortion"

Date: 
Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 5:00pm - 6:30pm
Location: 
Social Science Research, Room 122

An interdisciplinary panel of scholars engages in a conversation exploring the questions that sex-selective and genetic-selective abortion pose to feminist thinkers. While new restrictions on reproductive rights invoke the need to limit discrimination based on sex and impairment, feminists must confront the limits of legal thinking for guiding our understanding of reproduction.

Moderated by Martha Nussbaum, University of Chicago

Discussants:
Dorothy Roberts, University of Pennsylvania Law School
Rosalind Petchesky, Hunter College - City University of New York
Rayna Rapp, New York University
