Dr. Sarah A. Williams
Sarah A. Williams holds a PhD in Medical Anthropology from the University of Toronto and is currently the Louise Lamphere Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies at Brown University. Her research focuses on reproductive health and rights in Mexico and Canada, with a particular emphasis on reproductive justice approaches to maternal healthcare and Indigenous reproductive rights. Her work has been featured in Social Science & Medicine, Women & Health, and the Canadian Medical Association Journal, and she is also a doula and advocate for evidence-based birth practices.
Hannah Mayne (M.A.) is a doctoral candidate in Anthropology at the University of Toronto and the proud granddaughter of Gertrude Katz, who fought with Henry Morgentaler to repeal the anti-abortion law in Canada. In the 1970s and 80s Gertie helped establish and maintain clinics across Canada where medical abortions were safely available, even before they were legal. Hannah's research explores the intersections of gender, Jewish orthodoxy, and women’s prayer.
