WCC; 3038 V& E Room

Join us in welcoming Merle Hoffman for a conversation with Professor Diane Rosenfeld on Hoffman’s new book Choices: A Post-Roe Abortion Rights Manifesto on Wednesday, March 6, from 12:30-1:15PM in WCC 3038

Merle Hoffman has been at the forefront of the reproductive freedom movement since the 1970s. Three years before the Supreme Court legalized abortion through Roe v. Wade, she helped to establish one of the United States’ first abortion centers in Flushing, Queens, and later went on to found Choices, one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive women’s medical facilities. For the last five decades, Hoffman has been a steadfast warrior and fierce advocate for every woman’s right to choose when and whether or not to be a mother.

Now, amidst the aftermath of the Dobbs Decision, Merle Hoffman has carefully compiled her decades of analysis, research, and experience into a tour de force manifesto, Choices, that sheds light on the catastrophic repercussions of overturning Roe, and what we must do moving forward to ensure the safety and legality of abortion nationally.

Lunch will be available.
This event is sponsored by the Gender Violence Program, the Harvard Women’s Law Association, and the Alliance for Reproductive Justice.
