Handmaid in America
Also part of Pen America World Voices Festival is a panel discussion Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 2:30PM. Forty-five years after the constitutional right to abortion was won in the U.S., attempts to subvert women’s reproductive rights have never been been more zealous or determined. How should we respond to the efforts by state and federal legislators to bring in laws and regulations that envision women as mere breeders? Siri Hustvedt, author of A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women, and Leni Zumas author of Red Clocks, talk to Anne Summers about what roles literature, including fiction and poetry, philosophy and science, might have in helping us understand, and resist, such enduring misogyny.
