Event description
Keynote speaker: Karolina Więckiewicz: "Solidarity in access to abortion - change-making based on radical empathy and creativity"

About this event

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.

You are invited to 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.

Karolina co-founded (2016) “Abortion Dream Team on Tour” – a group of activists who travel around Poland to explain medical abortion, support those in need of abortion, promote speaking about abortion without stigmatisation. Member of inroads (International Network for Reduction of Abortion Discrimination and Member of the Legal Group at the Transfuzja Foundation helping transgender persons Stigma).

This event is organised to mark the retirement of Ursula Barry who was the Director of Gender Studies in UCD between 2010-20, and before that of Women's Studies, UCD.
