Maternal Health and Black Women

Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies 300

Usual Description

Black women of childbearing age around the globe have worse maternal health indicators and outcomes than their non-Black counterparts. These indicators stem from life-long poverty, racism, gender discrimination, and limited life opportunities. This course examines the complex interplay of socio-historical factors and lived experiences affecting Black women’s health during reproductive years and assesses public health efforts geared toward improving their maternal health.
