Prudence Flowers's work focuses on social movement activism, modern conservatism, medicine and public health, and the politics of gender, sexuality, and the body. I am particularly interested in abortion and family planning, both as elements of health care and as triggers for polarizing social movement formation.I completed undergraduate and postgraduate study at the University of Melbourne. I am currently Lecturer in US History at Flinders University in Adelaide. I am currently working on several projects, including (i) work exploring the political education of the anti-abortion movement in the United States, exploring what happened after the ‘social issue’ of abortion was embraced by Reagan Republicans, and (ii) a qualitative study focusing on provision, access, and regulation of termination of pregnancy after 20 weeks' gestation in Western nations such as Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
