Chapter Eleven – Angela Davis

Angela Davis Exercises

  • Exercises

    • List some of the examples Davis cites of forceful sterilization of Black and Indigenous Women of Color (BIWOC).
    • While DeGouges naturalizes procreation and the role of women in reproducing ourselves, Davis instead amasses evidence on how the state disposes of “non-desirable” bodies by forced sterilizations of BIWOC. Explain how it was racist of white women to not listen to BIWOC on the issue of reproductive rights. Explain the racism inherent in the situation and come up with concrete examples of anti-racist ways in which this issue could have been addressed
