Your Call: Who are the women and girls impacted by abortion restrictions?


On March 6th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Bay Area artist and Cultural Odyssey director Rhodessa Jones about Birthright, a new performance developed in collaboration with Planned Parenthood or Northern California. It explores questions, issues, and the debate surrounding reproductive rights. Who are the women and girls impacted by restrictions on access to abortion and gender based violence? How are they fighting back? And what are their stories? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


Rhodessa Jones, performance artist, writer, co-artistic director of the San Francisco-based performance company Cultural Odyssey, and founder/director of the Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women

Adrienne Bousian, vice president of public affairs at Planned Parenthood Northern California
