Feminism from the Left
Abortion is still a criminal offence in Germany — even the new government lacked the courage, or perhaps desire, to change anything in that regard. The right to sexual self-determination thus remains an important field of political struggle. But even so, the right to have children and raise them in safety and security remains precarious for many women, both in Germany and around the world
The concept of “reproductive justice” was pioneered by feminists of colour to advocate for a reorientation of the struggle for sexual self-determination. It marks an important point of orientation for left-wing and socialist feminisms worldwide.
