A Woman’s Right To Know

A Woman’s Right to Know” is the provocative title of a new book about the history of women’s access to reproductive health services, leading up to today’s quagmire of states’ undermining of women’s rights to family planning and abortion. Written by Carol Roye, EdD, RN, FAAN, a longtime women’s health nurse practitioner and professor of nursing at Hunter College, the book provides surprising details about the religious and political alliances that evolved around women’s reproductive rights, turning the issue into a political debate rather than medical issue.

Tonight on Healthstyles, producer and moderator Diana Mason, PhD, RN, interviews Dr. Roye about the twists and turns of this curious history that includes prior support from conservative religious organizations, as well as the impact of today’s restrictions on access to reproductive services.
So tune in tonight at 11:00 PM on WBAI, 99.5 FM (, or click here to listen now:

Healthstyles is sponsored by the Center for Health, Media & Policy at Hunter College.
