BE THE CHANGE: Robin Marty, author of New Handbook for a Post-Roe America

With the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade Americans once again find themselves fighting for bodily autonomy and basic human rights.

In what ways does each approach to writing challenge or relax the writer (and, indeed, the reader)?
