Poland: frontline struggle for reproductive & sexual justice

Access to abortion is never off the front-line of the struggle for reproductive justice - whether in US where Roe v Wade is under threat and State restrictions are mounting or in Central and Eastern Europe where reproductive rights and sexual justice are increasingly being undermined with devastating consequences or in Ireland where the battle for full and equal access to abortion is far from over. International solidarity is key to this battle for reproductive justice as we experienced in Ireland.

UCD are holding an in-person event to hear the unique experience and analysis of Karolina Wieckiewicz, front-line human rights defender of human, reproductive and sexual Justice from Poland where access to abortion has been severely restricted.   

WHEN: 6pm Wednesday 25th May Sutherland Building, UCD
