Risk and Resistance: How Feminists Transformed the Law and Science of AIDS
Professor Aziza Ahmed of Boston University Law School presents the first two chapters of her work Risk and Resistance: How Feminists Transformed the Law and Science of AIDS. This book discusses the success of feminist AIDS activists in the 1980s in changing the scientific definition of AIDS used by the CDC and the impact of this on the distribution of benefits by the Social Security Administration.
Aziza Ahmed’s scholarship examines the intersection of law, politics, and science in the fields of constitutional law, criminal law, health law, and family law. She will be teaching the International Human Rights Seminar and a Reproductive Rights course this fall.
