Scotland, abortion rights, and speaking up
The STUC Women’s Committee and Conferences have been at the forefront of campaigning for women’s reproductive health rights. From the very earliest days, trade union women have argued for public funding for maternal and child health clinics, and for access to safe and legal abortion services that do not place women’s lives at risk. In 1979 it was the TUC that led the biggest demonstration ever on the streets of London, against the Corrie Bill, which sought to restrict access to abortion.

Abortion in The Media
On Friday Abortion Rights hosted a special screening of the new US film Obvious Child dubbed the 'abortion rom com' at the Genesis Cinema in east London. We were joined by the Writers and Director as well as the lead actress Jenny Slate who answered questions about getting funding for the film, why they made directorial and acting choices and about the reaction they received at showings across America. We were also joined by film graduate and NUS Women's Officer, Susuana Antubam to talk about how film and culture affect women in society.
