From Oscar-nominated filmmakers: the gripping story of Mexican immigrant women and their fight for reproductive justice after they were sterilized while giving birth at Los Angeles County Hospital. Alongside a young Chicana lawyer and a whistle-blowing doctor, they filed a landmark lawsuit asserting their right to bear children under Roe v. Wade. Come learn about this hidden history.
Join us for the documentary’s screening and a discussion led by Professor Khiara M. Bridges. Professor Bridges is Visiting Professor of Law at Yale Law School where she teaches a seminar on critical race theory.
