Overview

"Krystale E. Littlejohn astutely delves into women's birth control decisions and practices, revealing the ways they can be compulsory and connected to gender inequality processes. She contributes valuable insights to reproductive justice scholarship and activism by focusing on this particular form of reproductive injustice."—Lorena Garcia, author of Respect Yourself, Protect Yourself: Latina Girls and Sexual Identity

"In this beautifully written, highly accessible book, Littlejohn—in the best tradition of sociological research—effectively demonstrates the social forces at play in individuals' use of contraception. In the best tradition of feminist scholarship, she brilliantly reveals the gender inequality contained in society's dominant assumptions about appropriate contraceptive behavior. In the best tradition of reproductive justice scholarship, she points the way forward for better understandings and practices."—Carole Joffe, coauthor of Obstacle Course: The Everyday Struggle to Get an Abortion in America

"Littlejohn makes a unique and powerful contribution. Just Get on the Pill offers a dynamic, compelling analysis that challenges mainstream thinking about contraceptive responsibility, with specific, practical, and achievable recommendations for social justice change."—Laury Oaks, Professor and Chair, Department of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
