Loretta Ross Biography

Loretta Ross is an award-winning, nationally recognized expert on racism and racial justice, women's rights, and human rights. Her work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how intersectionality can fuel transformation.

Ross is a visiting associate professor at Smith College in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender, teaching courses on white supremacy, race and culture in America, human rights, and "Calling in the Call Out Culture." In 2022, she was announced a MacArthur Fellow for her work as an advocate for reproductive justice and human rights, and in 2024, was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.

She has co-written three books on reproductive justice: "Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Justice," winner of the Outstanding Book Award by the Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Bigotry and Human Rights; "Reproductive Justice: An Introduction," a first-of-its-kind primer that provides a comprehensive yet succinct description of the field and puts the lives and lived experience of women of color at the center of the book; and "Radical Reproductive Justice: Foundations, Theory, Practice, Critique." Her latest book, "Calling In the Calling Out Culture," was published in 2021.

Ross appears regularly in major media outlets about the issues of our day. She was recently featured in a New York Times piece, "What if Instead of Calling People Out, We Called Them In?" She was a co-founder and the National Coordinator, from 2005 to 2012, of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, a network of women of color and allied organizations that organize women of color in the reproductive justice movement. Other leadership positions have included:

Ross is a rape survivor, was forced to raise a child born of incest, and is a survivor of sterilization abuse. She is a model of how to survive and thrive despite the traumas that disproportionately affect low-income women of color. She is a nationally-recognized trainer on using the transformative power of Reproductive Justice to build a Human Rights movement that includes everyone.

Ross serves as a consultant for Smith College, collecting oral histories of feminists of color for the Sophia Smith Collection which also contains her personal archives.

She is a graduate of Agnes Scott College and holds an honorary Doctorate of Civil Law degree awarded in 2003 from Arcadia University and a second honorary doctorate degree awarded from Smith College in 2013. She is pursuing a PhD in Women’s Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. She is a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother.
