This course explores aspects of women’s reproductive health from biomedical, social, cultural, public health, political and health policy perspectives. Topics include reproductive physiology, sexual health, contraception and family planning, sexually transmitted infections, infertility and reproductive technologies, pregnancy loss, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The course aims to teach the biomedical knowledge essential to understanding these topics, and in addition offers students the tools to critically evaluate this knowledge from a feminist perspective. Race and racial disparities in reproductive health and health care are also considered. While the initial focus of the course is on U.S. frameworks for health care, reproductive health in transnational and global contexts is also considered.
