Women across America are dependent upon the will of their state and the federal legislators, who are primarily male, as well as for-profit-health insurance companies; employers who provide insurance, and in some cases, religious organizations. What impact do these entities have on women’s equality regarding reproductive rights as well as their socio-economic and emotional well-being?
Key issues to consider:
1) Health care and gender equality;
2) the current state of governmental control over women’s reproductive health;
3) government funding and/or employers’ refusal to provide coverage for prescription contraceptives;
4) the conflict between the right to contraception and abortion vs. the religious opposition’s to overturn Ro v. Wade.
