Stacey has provided gynecological care in women’s clinics, volunteer-staffed a women’s homeless shelter, run a legislative office and fundraised for abortion access, raised money for women, choice, lesbians, and human rights, sued the State of Montana twice to advance the standing of the LGBT community, and organized countless meetings, programs, conferences, and marches.

Jennifer Hill

With a passion for making the everyday realities of past peoples come alive, Jennifer Hill holds a Master’s degree in Accounting and a PhD in American Studies. Her research and writing focus on childbirth, contraception, abortion, and healthcare in the American West – an area with a compelling reproductive history.

Based on the belief that history is a powerful tool for understanding current controversies, Jennifer works to interpret women’s historical birthing challenges in ways that inform contemporary reproductive issues. Much of daily life has changed over the last several centuries, but a surprising amount remains constant – each person still enters the world through childbirth, a truly universal human experience.
