Michelle Goldberg gave a reading of her new book, The Means of Reproduction, at Babeland in soho for Planned Parenthood NYC‘s Activist Council Sex Ed Advocacy Group last Tuesday.  As a newly-minted “Activist” I was thrilled to attend.  The event was comprehensive and Michelle was well-spoken and very impressive.

She read snippets from the book and discussed  the ‘global culture war raging [over] who controls women’s fertility– and, more broadly, women themselves.”  The book traces public policy affecting women’s human rights through recent history and across the globe.  Here’s an interview with Goldberg on RH Reality Check.

The Activist Council’s Sex Ed Advocacy Group, which hosted the event, “advocat[es] for comprehensive sex education and cultivating sexual health awareness.”  Their new campaign, “We’re going to the principal’s office!” is asking us to reach out to our contacts in the public school system to ask them to nudge their principals to bring comprehensive sex ed to their schools.
