Reviews

"By examining the failings and triumphs of previous movements for abortion rights, Without Apology manages to make perfect sense of the current political moment. This book will turn concerned individuals into activists and help beleaguered activists remember how it feels to believe that we can win."
--Amelia Bonow, Shout Your Abortion

"Without Apology draws an exhilarating line in the sand between reformers and visionaries, between near-sighted regulation and true reproductive freedom. Jenny Brown has given us a frank, full-throated gift in an era when abortion rights are threatened by hostility and timidity both. Without Apology made me want to tweet about my abortion till the day I die."
--Nona Willis Aronowitz

"A cogent manifesto ... [Brown's] call to 'move feminism toward bolder, more universal demands' is likely to strike a chord with young progressives. This laser-focused polemic makes its case effectively."
--Publishers Weekly

"A powerful and extensively researched case for a militant approach to winning reproductive rights."
--Emily Janakiram, Baffler
