Caption
This round pinback button advocated for abortion rights and reproductive freedom. The message was promoted by the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program (now Collective Power), launched in 1981 at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA. The pin features the silhouette of a woman with her right fist raised, inside the female gender symbol. White lettering on a light mulberry background reads "Fight For Abortion Rights And Reproductive Freedom".
The button is among more than 200 collected by Washington, DC-based environmental justice advocate Vernice Miller-Travis.
