My research at PRIVACY focuses on how women’s ability to work (or their access to other modes of subsistence) might have been influenced by attempts to control their fertility. I focus, in particular, on historical sources that document unwanted pregnancies, attempts at avoiding pregnancies, and pregnancy termination. I am especially interested in the experiences of women of lower social status, and their interaction with their families, communities, and authorities. My research is informed by an intersectional feminist analysis of my historical material.
