Fire up to beat the "Religious Freedom" Bill, inspired by global fights for reproductive justice

The far right is closing in on abortion rights. In the U.S., a 1973 Supreme Court decision, which legalised abortion nationwide, could soon be overturned by the same, now conservative-stacked court. In Australia, a federal “religious freedom” bill would seriously undermine women’s reproductive choices, as well as legitimise discrimination against minority groups.

This gathering features a video from a recent forum, hosted by Radical Women U.S., where international speakers told how women in Ireland and Argentina won legal abortion and connected these inspirational examples to the fight in the United States. On October 3, a massive grassroots mobilisation, initiated by Radical Women and endorsed by union, feminist and socialist organisations, took place across the U.S. This date commemorates the death of Rosie Jimenez in 1977, the first woman to die after the government withdrew federal funding for abortions.

Join us in taking lessons and inspiration from these international warriors. Come away energised, uplifted and galvanised to action for reproductive rights in Australia.
