Jane Against the World

FROM AWARD WINNING AUTHOR KAREN BLUMENTHAL COMES A DEEP AND PASSIONATE LOOK AT THR RIVETING HISTORY OF THE FIGHT FOR REPRODUCTION RIGHTS IN THE UNITED STATESTracing the path to the landmark decision in Roe v Wade and the continuing battle for women't rights Blumenthal examines. I picked up Jane Against the World Roe v Wade and the Fight for Reproductive Rights by Karen Blumenthal because of the colorful cover I stayed for the interesting take on how the history of abortions has shaped the modern viewpoints on this topic On track to be published in February of 2020 this non fiction book intended for younger and liberal audiences gives a detailed play by play on the events leading up to and following the Roe v Wade court case as well as describing the events of the actual case itself Starting in the 1800s the author through inclusion of meaningful events from all throughout history shows us just exactly how we got the point we are today with women s rights It turns out that if I hadn t judged this book by its cover I never would have chosen this incredible and informative read The format of this novel is what made it particularly engaging for me Although the book discusses true events it is told as though it is a narrative incorporating both facts and craft I often find myself marveling at the power of some of the phrases in this book and in cases than one the narrative style has deepened the book s impact Further the author s use of pictures in the text contributed greatly to my enjoyment of the book Since all the characters mentioned are real seeing what they looked like made them become even real to me A picture is worth a thousand words and those thousand words saved from including a picture went to giving readers carefully researched and analyzed information allowing them to formulate their own opinion about the issue based on the knowledge presented to them As if a narrative format and images weren t enough the author included a recurring section entitled Pregnant Pause in which the author provides extra information about the current topic she is discussing usually bringing up a new historical figure or a different perspective on a given subject The skillful use of uniue formatting only contributes to the superior uality of this text Because of how emotionally complex of a topic abortion is I believe a non fiction book with a narrative formate is defintely the best approach to get the necessary message across It feels like a fiction book and you can connect and relate to the people mentioned but you also get an abundance of information from many perspectives throughout history that a typical fiction book can t provide The theme and overarching ideas of this novel made it not only an interesting read but an incredibly great one The emphasis the author puts on discussing not only women s rights but the rights of women of different races and social statuses adds a layer of complexity to the issues discussed that usually isn t brought up The author believes that women have a right to make their own well informed decisions about their bodies It is abundantly evident after reading this book that the author put many hours into finding the most relevant and powerful information to support this theme There are countless examples included detailing the history of how women s voices were surpressed in abortion debates and how until about 50 years ago there was little to no access to reliable sex education and contraception The theme is easily understood and the main message gets across extremely clearly The simplicity in how the theme is conveyed leaves plenty of time for the reader to reflect and think about their own opinions on the topics discussed This book is extremely relevant and anyone looking to make themselves well informed should pick this book up Abortion and women s rights has been an extremely controversial issue in politics and knowing about the history and causes of the issue lets me make my opinion based on facts I never knew about the racial and wealth related aspects of abortion before reading this book As a teenage girl I take the issue of abortion very seriously and I like to seize every opportunity for educating myself This book is the perfect way to make the complicated history of abortion and birth control accessible in one neat book Reading this book made me better well informed as a person and I m very glad that I was able to hear this story and learn Jane Against the World Roe v Wade and the Fight for Reproductive Rights by Karen Blumenthal was definitely one of the better books I ve read I found myself always excited to pick up this book There s something magical about being able to educate yourself and read about history I would highly recommend this book to anyone willing to go on a journey through time and experience the hardships faced by women over the past 200 years After all putting yourself in someone else s shoes is the only way to grow and become empathetic as a human being and books can act as an outlet in which to do so
