Meghan Olivia Warner

Meghan uses qualitative methods to study bodies as cites for the reproduction of gender inequality. More specifically, she studies sexual violence, family formation, and pregnancy and childbirth.

In her dissertation, she uses interviews, surveys, and observations to study how race, class, and gender shape women’s pregnancy and childbirth plans and experiences. This dissertation, which is supported by grants from both the Center for Institutional Courage and Stanford University, examines institutional courage and betrayal before, during, and after birth.
