Political and civil equality for women has historically and explicitly turned on the question of who controls a woman's body: the individual woman? the married woman's husband? the encompassing society? This ability to control was hotly contested throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, and was a key matter of principle for the utopian Oneida Community. In this discussion, Beth LeGere, (Mohawk Hudson Planned Parenthood) and Molly Jessup (OCMH Curator of Education) discuss that contest for rights and equality.
