Ma Liberté, la Contraception [My Freedom, Contraception]. Pressing Issues.

Ma Liberté, la Contraception [My Freedom, Contraception].

Joué-les-Tours: Imprimexpress, (c. 1971). Offset poster. Succinctly and powerfully stating two foundational tenets of reproductive justice—prophylactic contraception and legal abortion—this poster forefronts the need for women’s rights to match the pace of the mid-century sexual revolution. Among the organizations focused on channeling the feminist movement into legislative and cultural reform was Association Choisir. Begun in 1971 by Gisèle Halimi and Simone de Beauvoir, the Association fought for the decriminalization of abortion, understanding that political change and social change go hand in hand. France legalized abortion in 1975; the Association, now called Choisir de la Cause des Femmes, continues to fight for access and equity in reproductive options, as well as advocating against sexual violence. Loose bends in paper, else fine. Framed. (28 by 13 3/4 in.). Item #30608
