Book Talk: "Just Get on the Pill"

Wednesday, May 25 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Redwood Room
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Join the Center for Global Health and assistant professor of sociology and author Krystale Littlejohn as she discusses her book, Just Get on the Pill: The Uneven Burden of Reproductive Politics.

"In Just Get on the Pill, a keenly researched and incisive examination, Krystale Littlejohn investigates how birth control becomes a fundamentally unbalanced and gendered responsibility. She uncovers how parents, peers, partners, and providers draw on narratives of male and female birth control methods to socialize cisgender women into sex and ultimately into shouldering the burden for preventing pregnancy.

Littlejohn draws on extensive interviews to document this gendered compulsory birth control—a phenomenon in which people who give birth are held accountable for preventing and resolving pregnancies in gender-constrained ways."

Refreshments will be provided. The first 20 people will receive a free copy of the book.
