Traditionally, the reproductive rights movement has focused on securing legal rights for individuals to obtain reproductive health services. Here, we focus on the tenets of reproductive freedom and autonomy developed by women of color. By creating and improving Wikipedia entries, we aim to correct the omission of marginalized communities from scholarship and general knowledge. We seize this opportunity to counterbalance inequity with diverse voices from within Barnard’s community. No experience is necessary to participate. Registration is encouraged but not required.
