Race and Reproduction

Wed 14 Nov, 6pm
Running Time: 1 hour

Infertility doesn’t discriminate: it affects one in six couples, regardless of race. But are there different pressures and prejudices depending on the community you come from? For people of colour is childlessness even more of a stigma and taboo?

This session will feature public speaker and coach Monica Douglas Clarke –  AKA the Rebel Reverend – who talks passionately about the taboo of childlessness in Afro Caribbean communities; and writer Satinder Chohan whose acclaimed play Made In India put the ethical issues associated with commercial surrogacy under the spotlight. Chaired by Gabby Vautier (Fertility Fest Director).

In association with Fertility Fest - the world’s first arts festival dedicated to fertility, infertility, modern families and the science of making babies. fertilityfest.com
