Contraception as a right of privacy? The Supreme Court says, "Yes"!
A law against the sharing of information about contraception even within marriage is overturned, but the argument about who has control over the body doesn't disappear. The woman's body as a site of contention.

Action Speaks looks at contemporary issues through the lens of history by using under-appreciated moments of the twentieth-century, and provides a venue for fellow citizens to engage in thoughtful discussions about history, culture, and current events.

This year Action Speaks looks at moments when the rights of the individual have clashed with the needs or beliefs of the public and where the line between private and public has been defined or blurred.
