TITLE: When jail is the safety net: Women’s health and mass incarceration in the U.S.

Incarceration is a social determinant of health, and the lives of most women cycling through the criminal justice system are characterized by poverty, racism, trauma, addiction, unstable housing, and poor access to health care. Women’s health behind bars illuminates the intersection between health disparities, mass incarceration, and reproductive justice.

BIO: Carolyn Sufrin is a medical anthropologist and obstetrician-gynecologist at Johns Hopkins University. She has worked extensively as a clinician, researcher, educator, and advocate on reproductive health issues affecting incarcerated women, highlighting the intersections between mass incarceration and the politics of reproduction.

“When the punishment is pregnancy: Denying incarcerated women access to abortion”

The majority of the over 210,000 women in prisons and jails in the U.S. are of childbearing age, and some are pregnant at the time of their incarceration. While the legal record is clear that incarcerated women retain their right to abortion, lawsuits and institutions’ policies reveal that incarcerated women are often denied access to abortion. In this talk, I explore how abortion denials for imprisoned women exemplifies the punitive reproductive logic of mass incarceration and its racialized historical antecedents.
