Jenny Brown with Amelia Bonow
Author and longtime activist (she was a plaintiff in the suit to bring about a morning-after pill) Jenny Brown is here with her all-too-timely new book, Without Apology: The Abortion Struggle Now (Verso). She’s to be joined onstage in conversation with Seattle activist and writer Amelia Bonow, co-editor of the book, Shout Your Abortion (PM Press), and active with the organization around that work. And as Amelia Bonow says of Jenny Brown and this book, “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.”
“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.
