Body Politics: The War on Women's Health

Mar 10, 2018

3:20pm – 3:50pm CT

The conversation will focus on the following topics as they relate to the current political climate: how women's healthcare and access to birth control are at risk; the period tax and why some states are choosing to turn a blind eye or even veto bills put forward by state legislators; how the ingredients in tampons don't have to be disclosed and why it's dangerous that many brands include harmful chemicals; and the taboos around women's bodies.
