This paper is looking at the Reproductive Rights Movement during the 1960s-1980s and how it played out in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is a state of interest because it was so far behind every other state in the US on granting unmarried women rights to birth control while granting women access to legal abortions on the same level as many states at the same time. Looking at collections of three advocates for more access to birth control and abortion as well as the laws and news of the time shows that Wisconsin failed the to give women in the state their full rights by denying them choice in their reproduction.
