Regina is studying the social and political processes that make legal and institutional feminist reform possible. Her dissertation investigates the origins of the institutionalization of feminism in Mexico by looking at the feminist movement’s campaign to decriminalize abortion in the 1970s. She is examining the movement’s articulation of sex equality as liberation, and its opposition to the state’s competing view of sex equality and family planning as economic development issues. Her dissertation combines legal analysis, archival research, and interviews.
