Description

Kind to Women: how the 1967 Abortion Act changed our lives

A free film screening followed by a question-and-answer session with women featured in the film, and a drinks reception

In this moving documentary, women who survived illegal abortion, the nurses who picked up the pieces when things went wrong, campaigning doctors and abortion rights advocates share vivid memories of the time, and bring to life the story of this groundbreaking legislation and of a historic turning point for women's rights.

A drinks reception will follow in at Hamilton House.

'...bringing the real life experience of women to the forefront of the discussion in such a gripping way. Congratulations on an excellent piece of work'

'Shed some tears...I admire the bravery of the participants'

'Extremely powerful and empowering'

This event is brought to you by the UCL EGA Institute for Women's Health, with kind support from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare, the UK’s largest professional membership organisation working at the heart of sexual and reproductive healthcare www.fsrh.org
