Making Rights Claims

Karen Zivi

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes rights claiming done in the context of AIDS policy debates in the United States and South Africa. It illustrates how rights claims made, particularly on behalf of HIV-positive pregnant women, challenged dominant conceptions and practices of motherhood in ways that enabled women’s political subjectivity and democratic participation.

Keywords:   AIDS, motherhood, South Africa, political subjectivity
