2018 represents 100 years of women’s suffrage, with 6th February marking the hundredth anniversary of the Representation of the Peoples Act.
A rallying cry of the Suffragettes was Deeds Not Words. We have a government which pays lip service to women’s rights, their oppression and their representation. But these are only words.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act, Abortion Rights is organising a day of discussions and workshops and an evening of comedy, poetry and spoken word.
Saturday 28 October at the Rich Mix London
Day Event, 10:30 am – 4 pm
Evening Event, 7 pm – 10 pm
An action packed program brings together activists, journalists, politicians and performers to celebrate the legacy of the life-saving 1967 Abortion Act that dragged abortion out of the dangerous backstreet.

Victoria Square in the centre of Birmingham
The anti-choice, US-inspired ‘March for Life’ is organising a ‘Life-fest’ event in the centre of Birmingham on Saturday 20 May.
‘March for Life’ might have a shiny family-friendly appearance but don’t be fooled. It is made up of extreme anti-women, anti-choice, evangelical groups which are homophobic and have links to the far right. ‘March for Life’ is styled on the US anti-abortion movement and is using the same extreme slogan ‘life from conception –no exception’. It is actively supported by US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Speakers are being flown in from the US to the march in Birmingham.
