About Me

Alicia Gutierrez-Romine received her PhD in History from the University of Southern California and is an Assistant Professor of History at La Sierra University.

Gutierrez-Romine’s research explores illegal abortion in California from 1920-1969. Her book follows the experiences of women who sought abortions and the abortionists who provided them–whether in a proverbial back alley or across the border in Mexico.
