About the Author
Zakiya Luna is Associate Professor of Sociology and Feminist Studies at University of California, Santa Barbara. She is the author of Reproductive Rights as Human Rights: Women of Color and the Fight for Reproductive Justice.
"Through careful analysis and deep, multi-method research, Luna brings to light the story of the struggle of Black women seeking to redefine the reproductive justice movement. In doing so, the book examines some of the most urgent questions of today: how do people come together to redefine their own liberation not only through rights granted by the state, but also in the ways they relate to each other? Further, how does their work push the boundaries of social change, helping us to reimagine a different world? In an uncertain world with yawning gaps between the world we want and the world we have, this book provides fresh insight that scholars and organizers alike desperately need."--Hahrie Han, author of How Organizations Develop Activists: Civic Associations and Leadership in the 21st Century
"Zakiya Luna makes an essential contribution to the growing understanding of the crucial contributions women of color have made to historical and contemporary intersectional movements that embrace both anti-racism and feminism. She also tells a critical story of how the social movement organization SisterSong adapted international human rights discourse in the US domestic context to forge a struggle for reproductive justice."--Jennifer Nelson, author of More Than Medicine: A History of the Women's Health Movement
"Reproductive Rights as Human Rights is a necessary contribution to the scholarship on the reproductive justice movement and the reader will come to understand the movement through Luna's work."-- "Mobilization"
