Wake Up Little Susie: Single Pregnancy and Race Before Roe V Wade Hardcover - 1992

by Rickie Solinger


From the publisher

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.

From the rear cover

Those who want to put today's debates on race, poverty, and pregnancy into historical perspective should read 'Wake Up Little Susie' Rickie Solinger's timely and perceptive analysis of the years after World War II and before the legalization of abortion.
