About the Book

Rickie Solinger provides the first published analyses of maternity home programs for unwed mothers from 1945 to 1965, and examines how nascent cultural and political constructs such as the population bomb and the sexual revolution reinforced racially-specific public policy initiatives. Such initiatives encouraged white women to relinquish their babies, spawning a flourishing adoption market, while they subjected black women to social welfare policies which assumed they would keep their babies and aimed to prevent them from having more.
About the Author:

Rickie Solinger is also the author of The Abortionist: AWoman Against the Law and editor of Abortion Wars: A HalfCentury of Struggle, 1950-2000. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.
