In this episode, we look at the way movies and music discuss reproductive rights, including an analysis of Nicki Minaj lyrics, a history of American sex-ed films, and an exploration of the how movies make abortion seem more dangerous than it really is.
Read the extended version of the sex-ed film history essay, if you’re interested in the topic. This show also includes an essay by Maya Dusenbery on abortion in film, which you can read over at Feministing. Music from this episode is by City of the Sun.
