Sisterhood is Powerful: Polish Women, Irish Women and the Fight for Reproductive Justice

“If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.”‬ Gloria Steinem

Last week on a trip to London, I ended up covering the Repeal protests at the Irish and Polish embassies for VICE UK. As Irish women fight to remove their country’s abortion ban, Polish women are struggling to retain the limited abortion access they have in the face of mounting political threats. Speaking to activists, it was impossible not to be struck and inspired by the solidarity between both groups. You can read my VICE piece here.
