I welcome chapter contributions to my forthcoming edited volume (under contract with Routledge) entitled 'Transnational Visual Activism for Women’s Reproductive Rights:  My Body, My Choice'.

Focusing on contemporary visual activist and artivist practices for social justice and democratic rights, this book analyses and compares forms of feminist activism transnationally to interrogate bodily rights while closely examining the lived experiences of women and their right of free choice. The transnational framing engages with resurgent imperialist and colonial ambitions across global politics and with the attempts at disrupting these positionings by prioritising feminist care as instrumental for democracy and social justice. Key foci of this book are on the ways in which the visual can articulate, advocate, and enable women’s reproductive rights via specific methods, strategies, tactics, and methodologies employed locally and transnationally. 

I seek additional contributions that specifically address visual activist and artivist practices for reproductive rights in Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Australia and East Asia.


Please send proposals to: by Febrary 20th 2023, including:

  • a title of the proposed contribution

  • an abstract (up to 250 words) outlining the proposed chapter 

  • and a bio (up to 80 words).
