On the Front Lines of Reproductive Rights

As the first African American (and the first woman) to lead the Planned Parenthood Federation of America since Margaret Sanger founded the organization, Faye Wattleton has played a crucial role in defining our national debate over sex education, contraception, and abortion. In the second program in our series Who Controls Women’s Health?: A Century of Struggle, Wattleton sits down with Dr. Marcela Micucci, a scholar of gender and women’s history, to discuss the fraught history of women’s access to birth control and the role of Planned Parenthood in debates over female reproductive autonomy.

Following her lecture, Wattleton will be joined in conversation by Marcela Micucci, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellow at the Museum of the City of New York.
