Taking a Stand Lecture Series: Susan Cohen — Reproductive Rights: Past, Present & Future

Taking a Stand Lecture Series: Susan Cohen — Reproductive Rights: Past, Present & Future

Presentation by Susan A. Cohen, former Vice President for Public Policy at the Guttmacher Institute in Washington, DC. Ms. Cohen jointly directed the Institute’s public policy efforts, focusing on both U.S. federal policy as well as global sexual and reproductive health and rights. Beginning in 2013, she also served as the Editor in Chief of the Guttmacher Policy Review. During her 38 years at the Guttmacher Institute, Ms. Cohen made lasting contributions to the Institute and to the field of sexual and reproductive health more broadly.

The Guttmacher Institute was founded in 1968 as the Center for Family Planning Program Development. By integrating nonpartisan social science research, policy analysis and public education, the Center hopes to provide a factual basis for the development of sound governmental policies and for public consideration of the sensitive issues involved in the promotion of reproductive health and rights.
