AbstractReproduction and subsequent interconnections with society exist on a general level, but are arguably more negative for distinct populations. One distinct group who faces negative experiences with reproduction in society is incarcerated women. This population faces discrimination, poorer health outcomes, and more obstacles than nonincarcerated women when it comes to accessing reproductive-related processes. While all women are faced with struggles when it comes to reproduction and society, homogenizing the experiences of groups such as incarcerated women with the general experiences is damaging and allows existing disparities to be regarded less thoroughly. By examining and previous research and literature on reproductive justice, rights, and health, this project aims to create an advanced understanding of reproduction for incarcerated women. Understanding reproduction and society requires a deeper analysis of each of these three facets, as well as an understanding of their interconnectedness.
