A Conversation with Gabrielle Blair, author of Ejaculate Responsibly (OPEN TO ALL)

February 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Each year, Washington Women’s Foundation’s (WaWF) Member Events Committee (MEC) selects a book for all members to read and discuss. In 2023, MEC invites you to read Ejaculate Responsibly: A Whole New Way to Think About Abortion by Gabrielle Blair. Join us on February 15th 2023 at 12PM for a virtual discussion with the author.

If you or your friends have had experiences with birth control in your lives, you may find this quick-read book provocative, and you just may want to join WaWF in a discussion with the author, Gabrielle Blair.  Please join the discussion even if you haven’t yet read the book.

Workman Publishing describes the book: “In Ejaculate Responsibly, Gabrielle Blair offers a provocative reframing of the abortion issue in post-Roe America. In a series of 28 brief arguments, Blair deftly makes the case for moving the abortion debate away from controlling and legislating women’s bodies and instead directs the focus on men’s lack of accountability in preventing unwanted pregnancies.”

Ejaculate Responsibly is available for purchase at Third Place Books. We encourage you to consider purchasing it from Third Place Books, Bookshop.org or from your neighborhood bookstore. You can also check for the book at your local library.
