Jenny Brown: "Birth Strike"
Categories: Book signings
Tired of anti-abortion laws being passed--including the strictest ever in Georgia? Wondering why abortion is on the chopping block? The new book Birth Strike: The Hidden Fight over Women's Work explains that it's not just about culture or religion, but a response to the U.S.'s plunging birth rate. Liza Featherstone of The Nation writes, “Jenny Brown compellingly explains the low U.S. birth rate: those primarily responsible for the labor of bearing and raising children (women) are responding as one should to lousy working conditions—by going on strike! Brown’s bold and brilliant book ventures into terrain that left and feminist thinkers have avoided for far too long. A breathtakingly accessible analysis, supported by riveting and intimate testimonials, it’s also an inspiring call to action.”
