The PSTC and the Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women launched a new Reproductive Justice Research Collaborative in 2023. The group will have opportunities for Brown-affiliated researchers at all levels, from undergraduate through senior faculty.
Reproductive justice is a movement originating in and centering the work of feminist of color activists and scholars. It expands the framework of reproductive rights to a broader understanding of bodily autonomy, the right to parent in a safe and healthy environment and at a time of one's choosing, and the right not to become a parent. Members of this reproductive justice research working group come from a variety of disciplines and share in common a desire to better coordinate and amplify the reproductive justice research happening at Brown.
