About this Event

The Sexuality and Abortion Stigma Study (SASS) team are pleased to invite you to a webinar on Wednesday 3rd March to mark the launch of their new project website and research briefings.

The SASS project re-examines qualitative data from a decade of studies on abortion across the UK. Drawing on the accounts of women who have sought abortion, and health professionals involved in provision, the project addresses abortion stigma, and considers how to move the conversation on from stigma to normalisation, both in academic and in more everyday terms.

In the run up to International Women’s Day 2021, this webinar will showcase the SASS study’s findings, considered in the current context of Covid-19 and ongoing shifts in abortion provision in the UK.

The webinar will take place on 3rd March (3pm GMT), and will be chaired by SASS Advisory Group member, and President of IPAS, Dr Anu Kumar. There will be five short talks from the project team plus time for discussion.

  • Dr Carrie Purcell and Dr Karen Maxwell, MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow
  • Dr Fiona Bloomer, Ulster University
  • Prof Sam Rowlands, Bournemouth University
  • Prof Lesley Hoggart, The Open University

The newly launched SASS website acts as an archive for outputs from all the studies which have contributed to the SASS secondary analysis, all the new outputs associated with the study, and its follow-on projects.

Two SASS research briefings have been produced to accompany the two peer reviewed journal articles presenting the study’s findings so far, which have already been published.

A Zoom link will be emailed to all those registered shortly before the event.
