Book Review: Fired Up about Reproductive Rights by Jane Kirby
FIRED UP ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS was written by Jane Kirby, a writer and performing artist with a history of working with feminist and social justice organizations.
The FIRED UP series is aptly named. While the book is well-written and well-researched, the topic is infuriating. Most of us don’t know the extent that our reproductive lives remain under heteropatriarchal control.
The fight for reproductive rights does not exist in a vacuum. This book makes an argument for how racism, poverty, transphobia, and ableism are all components of reproductive issues. If you care about reproductive rights, you also need to care about social justice issues. If you care about social justice issues, you need to care about reproductive rights.
