Challenging Reproductive Control and Gendered Violence in the Americas: Intersectionality, Power, and Struggles for Rights utilizes an intersectional Chicana feminist approach to analyze reproductive and gendered violence against women in the Americas and the role of feminist activism through case studies including the current state of reproductive justice in Texas, feminicides in Latin America, raising awareness about Ni Una Mas and anti-feminicidal activism in Ciudad Juarez, and reproductive rights in Latin America amidst the Zika virus. Each of these contemporary contexts provides new insights into the relationships between and among feminist activism; reproductive health; the role of the state, local governments, health organizations, and the media; and the women of color who are affected by the interplay of these discourses, mandates, and activist efforts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Hernandez and De Los Santos Upton forge new ground in the transnational analysis of women, reproduction, and violence with an intersectional feminist lens. Besides their big-picture theoretical perspectives, the authors' use of case studies provides readers with in-depth details that are sure to resonate with readers. -- Kathleen Staudt, University of Texas at El Paso
Challenging Reproductive Control and Gendered Violence in the Americas is an ambitious project that makes an important connection between gendered violence and reproductive justice, placing issues as diverse as abortion restrictions and feminicidios within the context of the global epidemic of violence against women. Grounded in intersectionality and offering a specifically Chicana feminist perspective, Hernandez and De Los Santos Upton's analyses of media coverage of women's health issues in American and Latin American contexts point to the urgent need for media and activists to take up a reproductive justice framework. -- Tasha N. Dubriwny, Texas A&M University
