Violence disengages women from their reproductive rights Group Thesis Statement Whether it be political cartoons that take a stand on women's rights, a debate of presidents to discuss the future for a woman's health, a single woman making her stand for her career that is essential to a woman's well-being, or a movie that gives a reality check about how brutal women really have it; cultural production stands as a voice that makes a way for not one woman but all women's lives, and enables them to maintain their reproductive rights. One way being how cultural production motivates the masses (particularly women) and two, how it helps other women to know about problems around the world so that they can be made more aware and maybe do something to help diminish the problem.
