Women's History Month

The Racialized History of American Motherhood & Reproductive Medicine

March 12

2:00 - 3:00 PM MST

Presented by: Dr. Shannon Withycombe

Hosted by:

HSC Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

 

 

 

 

 

This talk will explore how medical developments, legal challenges, social policies, and demographic changes have shaped the meaning of motherhood in America in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It will describe early obstetrical narratives about race and childbirth, medical attention to and neglect of enslaved Black women, state and federal bans on fertility control, and early public health prenatal programs. The history of reproduction in this country is one deeply embedded in the history of race and understanding these roots can better inform us about modern racial disparities in health and medicine.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries - including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists - who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
