Beyond the Backstreet – Fighting for Abortion Rights 50 Years on

Beyond the Backstreet, held on 28 October, addressed the past, present and future of abortion rights activism, from discussing past activists’ legacies and how the Act was won to the most pressing issues facing abortion rights today, from decriminalisation to Northern Ireland and understanding the importance of realistic abortion stories in popular culture.

Judith Orr, author of Abortion wars, spoke at the event alongside campaigning legends, lawyers, journalists and activists from across the UK and Ireland.
