Reproductive rights have never been in more dire straits. Roe v. Wade protected abortion rights and Planned Parenthood v. Casey unexpectedly preserved them. Then an ultra-conservative Supreme Court decimated Roe and Casey. Abortion is now severely restricted or banned in nearly half of the states and other reproductive rights have been put at risk.

Legal titans Kathryn Kolbert and Julie F. Kay share the story of one of the most divisive issues in American politics through behind-the-scenes personal narratives of hard-earned victories, stunning losses, and moving accounts of those at the heart of nearly five decades of legal battles that led to where we are today. Now, when support for abortion is at an all-time high, access is more restricted than it has been in more than half a century. Kolbert and Kay propose audacious new strategies, invoke medical advances, political power-building tactics, and global human rights activism. Controlling Women provides a roadmap for what we must do now to save, and expand, reproductive freedom for all.
