Women's Healthcare, Censorship, and the Library: Problems, Issues, Questions.
The goal of this paper is to explore a number of examples of the censorship of women's healthcare issues and to investigate issues and questions related to those examples. The paper looks primarily at censorship in the United States; however, the problems and issues discussed are international in scope, and some international examples are examined. Although the roles libraries have played and might yet play in preventing such censorship are considered, the goal is to call attention to problems that exist more than to propose solutions to those problems.
