Talk by Deirdre Condit
History of American Reproductive Law via C-SPAN[7]

Condit studies women in politics.[8] She also specializes in women involved in Virginia politics and has pointed out that Virginia lags behind other states in the number of women serving in the legislature.[9] Condit also analyzes politics and issues surrounding abortion and fetal rights.[10] She has weighed in on local politics surrounding these issues in Virginia.[11][12] She has also been consulted in the news on issues relating to third-party candidacy and the two party system in Virginia.[13][14] In her work, "Reproducing Possibilities: Androgenesis and Mothering Human Identity," Andrea O'Reilly say that she does the "unthinkable" in exploring a material feminist idea in that "the lack of material reproduction in men significantly contributes to the fracture between men and women that has become sex oppression."[15] Condit also collaborates with her sister, Celeste Condit, in her work.[16]

Condit has been filmed for C-SPAN's American History series giving a talk entitled History of American Reproductive Law.[7]

Condit, along with four other professors is one of the founders of the new journal, Sexualization, Media, & Society.[5] Condit says of the journal that it provides a central location to find research on sexualization, hypersexuality and pornography and how it can affect individuals, relationships, communities and society.[5] The new journal is peer-reviewed and features original research, book reviews and expert opinion pieces.[17]

Education[edit | edit source]

Condit did her undergraduate work at Idaho State University.[17] She gained her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1997.[1]
