When it comes to reproductive health, the bulk of the responsibility is placed on women. Krystale E. Littlejohn, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Oregon, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why cis-gendered women are expected to prevent pregnancies, and how that reality underscores the gendered role of labor in America. Her book is called “Just Get on the Pill: The Uneven Burden of Reproductive Politics.”
