    5.1. Limitations and future research
    In-depth interviews with 70 women between 19 and 78 years old provided a unique opportunity to understand women's perceptions of cervical cancer prevention, including HPV vaccination. Although 11 participants (16.4%) identified as immigrants, future reproductive justice research should focus on immigrant populations to better un-derstand issues of access to health care (Macleod et al., 2017, 2018). Although the majority of our sample reported at least some higher education, extant research suggests that HPV vaccine completion rates do not differ significantly based on level of education (Suryadevara et al., 2016). This study provides an intersectional, reproductive justice framework for future research to improve understandings of other health behaviors and disparities.
    Findings map the social, economic, and environmental axes of in-equality by multiple dimensions, including race/ethnicity, SEP, ability, age, gender, sexual orientation, and immigration status (See Fig. 1). Results identify social constructions that form women's identities, creating opportunities to intervene and implement subversive strategies to empower women to take control of their health through informed, value-based decision-making (Butler, 2010). Findings from this study provide practical implications for a reproductive justice approach to increase women's agency in the development of successful public health interventions and communication campaigns to address cervical cancer prevention, including HPV vaccination.
