Legislative Write-In

This year, the Women’s History Month Committee will highlight the importance of advocacy with a month-long legislative write-in. At each Women’s History month event, we will provide postcards and writing materials for audience members to send to their local, state, and national representatives. Completed postcards can dropped off for mailing at the end of each event.


A Latina Herstory of Regulating Women’s Bodies

Professors Laura Oviedo and Jennifer Cain will present a brief history of the regulation of women’s bodies followed by the screening of award-winning PBS documentary “No Más Bebes.” The film shares the story of Mexican immigrant mothers in the 1960s-70s who were coerced into sterilization in the Los Angeles County – USC Medical Center. With a legal team led by a Chicana lawyer, Antonia Hernandez, the mothers sued medical and government institutions and their fight for reproductive justice made history in the 1975 civil rights lawsuit, Madrigal v. Quilligan.
