1. August 2018. 

Extract of the post:

"This March, I found myself in Krakow’s historic main square with a group of fellow KU students, waving a wire coat hanger and screaming “Hańba!” (disgrace) along with hundreds of protestors. After spending five weeks immersing ourselves in the issues around reproductive health and rights in Poland, we were thoroughly invested in Polish women’s efforts to resist repeated attacks on their reproductive freedom (1), and seized the opportunity to join them in protest. Abortion rights are an important issue for the global health community, and have been in the news frequently in 2018. "
