Summary
Presents reproductive justice as the pathway to equity and the birthplace of liberation. Wade, renowned radical doula and educator, speaks to the intersections of systemic issues--such as access to health care, house transportation, and nutrition--and personal trauma work that, if healed, have the power to lead us to collective liberation in all facets of life. Collective liberation rests on the idea that in order for us all to have equity in this world--from the safety of childbirth, to the ability to bring a baby home to a safe community, to having access to resources, safety, and opportunities over the long term--we must all become liberated individuals. -- Provided by publisher.
