Disability, Sexuality, and Family – Past and Present – in Alberta
Dr. Malacrida discussed her research with disabled women in Alberta about sexual reproduction and social control in the current context and historically. Survivors of Alberta’s eugenic period (1928-1972) describe both passive and active methods used to discourage them from having relationships, becoming pregnant or having children. In some ways, these efforts continue into the present. Interviews with disabled women today illustrate similar discouragements that operate in disability services and policy.
