Editor’s Note: 2023 Spring – Bodily Autonomy, Privacy, and Choice

Mar 1, 2023 | 2023 Spring - Bodily Autonomy, Privacy, and Choice, 2, Editor's Note

Dear Reader,

This is the second of two issues on “Bodily Autonomy, Privacy, & Feminism.” We received so much excellent content that we just had to create more space for this theme. Writers were asked, “With the repeal of Roe v. Wade, and the devastating loss of constitutional rights to bodily autonomy and privacy, we invite you to share your reflections both specifically and tangentially connected to this event. What has Roe v. Wade meant to you? What are your thoughts as an international observer? And what role does feminism play in your life as a bi+ person? Share your anger, sadness, hope for the future, or anything else coming up for you.”

What a wealth of responses! Writers in this issue hail from Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Serbia, Spain, Wales, and—in our “Around the World” feature—Sweden. 

On a separate note, we are very excited about our current BWQ team, which includes two new interns. You can read about them on page 5. 

We are in our 41st year of publication! If you are interested in sending us a birthday gift which would—in large part—go toward paying our interns, please do so at BiWomenQuarterly.com/donate.

If you’d like to help copy edit and proofread future issues, or if you’d like to help us out in any other way, please reach out to us.

We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we do.
