Marianinna is a graduate student who works on reproductive health, indigeneity, and human rights in rural Guatemala. Her work focuses on how women's understanding of reproductive rights and choices are impacted by religion, generational gaps, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. She is interested in analyzing changing discourses of the body, family, and gender relations. Her research focuses on the daily interactions between healthcare professionals, NGOs, community health volunteers, and patients―categories that often overlap―in order to analyze how reproductive health is negotiated at different levels.
