Contemporary Issues in Feminist Research series. Vivid images tend to prompt emotional, even excitable responses that can override our ability to make rational decisions. In early 2012, Virginia lawmakers attempted to commandeer physicians into performing invasive and medically unnecessary transvaginal ultrasounds on their patients before any abortion. In this study Patricia Chantrill, PhD, communications studies, examines the controversial “state rape” bill (expected to resurface in 2013) as an argument for visual literacy and the facilities of choice. Presented by Women’s Studies Center.
