Photographer, organizer, and activist Brittanny Taylor speaks to The Woman Project on her perspective of reproductive freedom in Rhode Island.
4. What is the best way to educate people on this issue?
I think talking about our personal experiences will help people understand the gravity of the situation. Going back to my work on The Lady Project Blog, I shared stories that left people thinking “wow, it’s not just me who has gone through this.” When people don’t know anyone personally who will be effected by a lack of reproductive freedom, it’s easier for them to not want to understand it or have the desire to learn more. When they have access to the stories, it is amazing how much empathy can start to build and understanding of something outside of themselves can grow.
5. If people wanted to get involved in The Lady Project, what is an easy access to that community for our community?
