Amber Vayo’s Work Appears in Law and Social Inquiry

Amber Vayo’s State Reproductive Autonomy Index has been published in Law and Social Inquiry. A large, original data created using a reproductive justice frame, the Index offers ways to map legal pluralism (multiple systems of law that coexist in the same space) and makes the case for reproductive justice not reproductive rights as the dominant discourse surrounding reproductive politics. Additionally, the article calls for more systematic ways of studying health law and policy issues through public health Law methods like Legal Epidemiology. (The States of Inequality: Methods for Mapping Legal Pluralism in Reproductive Autonomy, Law and Social Inquiry)
