Well, feel free to start today, of course … We’re referring to the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective second national conference, titled “Let’s Talk About Sex” — a four day affair that runs from May 31-June 3 in Chicago.
Why a conference? SisterSong says it here:
Since the right to have sex is a topic rarely discussed when addressing reproductive health and rights issues, SisterSong believes that sexual prohibitions are not only promoted by moral conservatives in this country, but also by reproductive rights advocates who fail to promote a sex-positive culture.
We believe that sex for pro-creation or sexual pleasure is a human right, and we are striving to create a pro-sex space for the pro-choice movement.
This four-day conference will include workshops and plenaries on topics such as birth control, senior sexuality, STDs, microbicides, gynecological health and wellness, erotica, militarism, and more, all through a reproductive justice lens. There will also be a special track of workshops designed by and for young women and teens.
