Second Annual No Footprint Event
Not Every Woman
A panel discussion featuring women who have exerted their reproductive right to be childfree in honor of empowerment of choice and environmental sustainability.
Thursday, September 16, 2021 | 10 AM PT/1 PM ET
The Not Every Woman panel is inspired by Maxine Trump’s film To Kid or Not To Kid and Dr. Amy Blackstone’s book Childfree by Choice: The Movement Redefining Family & Creating a New Age of Independence—two pieces of content that explore reproductive health freedom and womanhood. Our panelists, including creatives, activists, and a medical professional, will discuss the motivations, challenges, and impacts of the child-free choice.

Dr. Amy Blackstone, Sociologist And Author Of Childfree By Choice – A professor of sociology, Dr. Amy Blackstone has been studying the childfree choice since 2008, a choice she and her husband had already confidently and happily made. Using her own and others’ research as well as her personal experience, Blackstone delves into the childfree movement from its conception to today, exploring gender, race, sexual orientation, politics, environmentalism, and feminism, as she strips away the misconceptions surrounding non-parents and reveals the still radical notion that support of the childfree can lead to better lives and societies for all.
