RAG Presents: Two documentary films concerning the legalisation of abortion
Wednesday, 21 November 2012, 7.30 pm
Curved Street, Temple Bar, 2 Dublin, Ireland
1. Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa
abortion democracy poland - south africa
This documentary feature explores and contrasts changes in Poland and South Africa regarding abortion laws and their impact on the lives of women. In the 90's, Poland banned abortion due to the increasing influence of the Catholic Church after the fall of communism; around the same time South Africa legalized it, reforming the health system after the fall of apartheid. The film reveals how the legal status of women is a direct result of the silencing or empowering of women's voices.
2. The Coat Hanger Project
The Coat Hanger Project Home Page
