JENNIFER BAUMGARDNER & AMY RICHARDS

Abortion & Life (Akashic) - by Baumgardner
Opting In: Having a Child Without Losing Yourself (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) - by Richards
In Baumgardner's bold new work, she explores some of the thorniest issues around terminating a pregnancy, including the ones that the pro-choice establishment has been the least sensitive or effective in confronting.
"Amy Richards is always showing a new way forward for her generation of feminists and has done so once again with Opting In-a smart, savvy exploration of real-life, real-time motherhood that is sure to resonate." -Naomi Wolf
"If Jennifer Baumgardner ever needs another mom, I'll be the first in line to adopt her. She's smart, fearless, and a formidable force for change."
-Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed
Baumgardner is the producer/creator of the award-winning film I Had an Abortion. She is the coauthor (with Amy Richards) of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future and Grassroots: A Field Guide for Feminist Activism (both Farrar, Straus & Giroux). Her most recent book is Look Both Ways: Bisexual Politics. She writes regularly for women's magazines like Glamour, Elle, and Allure, as well as more political outlets such as the Nation, Harper's, and NPR's All Things Considered.
