Women Rising Radio#37: Choice, Church and State: Poland, Ireland, the USA

Play

Abortion and women’s reproductive rights are still hot button issues around the world.  Women have a long way to go to obtain control over our own bodies, our own                   family planning, our own reproductive health.  There are influential, well-funded efforts to keep that control out of our hands.  Women Rising Radio visits with two key organizers in Europe whose current work is advancing women’s  reproductive rights.   Marta Lempart, a key organizer with the Polish Women’s Strike of 2016, and also of the annual International Women’s Strike, is battling ultra right-wing forces in Poland. Ailbhe Smyth is a feminist activist and key organizer in Ireland’s successful Together for Yes campaign, which made abortion legal there in 2018.  Sara Hutchinson Ratcliffe  is an advocate with Catholics for Choice in the USA   and abroad; and her colleague Sarah Flores is a youth organizer with Latina Institute for Reproductive Health.  All these women are on the front lines of activism for  women’s reproductive rights.
