Washington, D.C. — Under the Trump-Pence administration and the anti-choice majority in Congress, women’s health and rights are under full attack with efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, further restrict access to abortion, and confirm an anti-choice Supreme Court justice. Yet women’s ability to contribute to the economic productivity of the nation depends on an intersectional, woman-centered economic agenda that articulates reproductive justice as an integral aspect of women’s multifaceted lives.
On Wednesday, March 15, join the Center for American Progress for a discussion on the mutually reinforcing ways in which reproductive health and economic empowerment help women and the overall economy thrive. The event will include a panel of experts, who will discuss efforts to integrate reproductive health, rights, and justice into a woman-centered economic agenda; increase women’s overall quality of life; and advance the American economy.
