Gender and Law Lunch and Learn: Sterilization for Freedom: Coerced Contraception for Reduced Sentences

Gender and Law Lunch and Learn: Sterilization for Freedom: Coerced Contraception for Reduced Sentences

September 20th 12:00-1:00pm

It seems unfathomable that a judge’s sentence determination would be based, in part, on an individual’s acquiescence to contraceptive measures, however, this was in fact the recent practice of a Tennessee judge. Join us for “Sterilization for Freedom: Coerced Contraception for Reduced Sentences” and explore and discuss current proposed measures to put an end to this practice on September 19th from 12:00 to 1:00pm in N104. RSVP by emailing womenlaw@wcl.american.edu!
