How Reproductive Rights Will Save Abortion Rights
Zakiya Luna is Assistant Professor of Sociology at University of California, Santa Barbara (courtesy appointment in Feminist Studies) and a faculty affiliate of the Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice at Berkeley Law, which she helped co-found. She earned her Master’s of Social Work, and a PhD in Sociology and Women’s Studies from University of Michigan. Her research is in the areas of social change, law, health and inequality. Specifically, she is interested in social movements, human rights and reproduction with an emphasis on the effects of intersecting inequalities within and across these sites.
This research was funded by multiple sources including the National Science Foundation. Her work has been published in Annual Review of Law and Social Science, Mobilization, Gender and Society, Research in Social Movements, Conflict and Change and Societies without Borders: Social Science and Human Rights among others. She was a UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow and Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellow. She is co-creator and co-editor of the University of California Press book series, Reproductive Justice: A New Vision for the 21st Century. She was a CoreAlign Generative Fellow (Blaze Cohort) and member of the Humane Resources Innovation Lab where her team examined how the reproductive justice movement organizations could be accountable to cultivating practices that recognize a person's whole self, in and beyond the workplaces, to help people thrive while sustaining the movement.
