I focus my research on the history of abortion from the perspective of women’s resistance networks in contexts where it is criminalized. I am interested precisely in women’s agency in the face of cultural and legal boundaries. My general interests are reproductive justice, motherhood, reproduction, social history, legal history and oral history.
