Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY) will deliver the Keynote Address at the HERS Foundation’s Hysterectomy Conference, Saturday April 24th at the Hilton New York in Manhattan.

Carolyn B. Maloney is a long time advocate for women’s rights. She is allied with such organizations as Emily’s List and the National Organization for Women. In 2008, she published “Rumors of Our Progress Have Been Greatly Exaggerated," a book that details the ongoing struggle women encounter on a number of fronts, including equal pay, politics, and healthcare.

State Representative Bruce Borders (IN) will discuss the Hysterectomy Informed Consent legislation he introduced this year. His talk, "Your Vote is Mightier than the Lobbyist's Dollar," will address changing the law, and the legislative process.

“un becoming,” by Rick Schweikert, will be screened on the eve of the conference. A play written in the rich tradition of American political theater, “un becoming” premiered Off Broadway in 2004. The screening will be followed by a talkback with Schweikert and HERS President, Nora W. Coffey.

Medical and legal experts will discuss the common reasons hysterectomy is performed, alternatives in treatment, medical malpractice, and a panel of women who have undergone hysterectomies will discuss the consequences of the surgery on their health, sex life and family. A prominent lawyer and women’s health advocate will discuss about the medicalization of women.
