About the Author(s)

Her current dissertation research examines rhetorical resilience in reproductive justice and fertility discourses, both historically and in online digital spaces. When she is not researching and teaching feminist rhetorics, she is engaging in the lived feminism of raising her daughter and advocating for women’s access to birth control, abortion, health care and sexual assault recovery and prevention.
