This is Jennifer, and you probably have a million emails from me already!
I just happen to be recovering from a Catholic upbringing, and I totally
relate. Sexuality in Catholic schools is taught on an ultra-limited level,
and certainly nothing about birth control. We could combine church
histories with sexuality. There is also a big debate in the Cathol. church
right now, because abortion used to be a pretty standard deal in days of
yore, but now, it's become a power issue for women Catholics. There is
also a big movement in Brazil (a pretty economically stratified nation, I
might add) called "CAtholics for Choice." Anyway, we could take this a
million ways, and I'd love to put our heads together. Great idea, Ariel!
LEt me know what people think!
