AS Womyn's Commission is proud to have Sarah Weddington come and speak about the struggles she faced and the future of reproductive justice and feminist activism. Join us for a talk, followed by a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be available. In 1973, 26-year-old Sarah Weddington successfully argued the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Ms. Weddington later went on to be the first woman from Austin to be elected to the Texas House of Representatives and then served as an assistant to President Jimmy Carter. She is the author of the book A Question of Choice, which is about her experience arguing Roe, and is a professor at the University of Texas.
