1. Patterson, Ashly S. The Menstrual Body.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2013, University of New Orleans

The main objective of this study is to develop a feminist theoretical understanding of menstruation. I first explore Simone de Beauvoir’s feminist existentialist concept of woman as Other to establish a baseline from which all other sociocultural discourses on menstruation flow. I next expand Erving Goffman’s symbolic interactionist theory on stigma to discuss the social-psychological internalization process that girls encounter as they become enculturated into menstruation as a stigmatic condition. I then use a macro-discursive, Foucauldian analysis on power and discourse to understand how menstruation has been socially constructed from premodern superstitions, to the rise of modern medicine in the late 19th century. I follow this with a Marxian, macro-materialist understanding of capitalism to discuss how the femcare industry emerged and commodified feminine hygiene products. Finally, I investigate how second and third wave feminists have mobilized to resist patriarchal ideologies which devalue, subordinate, and subjugate menstruating bodies. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Susan Mann, Dr. Rachel Luft, Dr. Gilda Reed.

2. Jolly, Nicole. Racial Reproductive Control Logics and the Reproductive Justice Movement.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2012, University of New Orleans

The reproductive justice movement gives a voice and representation to women of color whose experience of reproductive control is impacted by intersecting layers of oppression. This thesis uses an intersectional approach to develop the concept of racial reproductive control logics, which describes the relationship between racial logics and racial patterns of reproductive control. The study uses qualitative interviews and content analysis of organizational material to explore how the reproductive justice movement is influenced by racial reproductive control logics. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Rachel Luft, Dr. Susan Mann, Dr. Pam Jenkins.

Subjects/Keywords: Reproductive justice; intersectionality; racial formation; gender; reproductive control; Gender and Sexuality; Inequality and Stratification; Politics and Social Change; Quantitative, Qualitative, Comparative, and Historical Methodologies; Race and Ethnicity; Social Control, Law, Crime, and Deviance
