March for reproductive rights
A march for reproductive rights is being held 5 December 2018 at 12:30pm. The march is being organised by Organise Aotearoa, ALRANZ, the Victoria University Feminist Organisation, and the Feminist Law Society.
Speakers will include Jan Logie from the Green Party, Priyanca Radhakrishnan from the Labour Party, long time women’s-rights advocate Sue Bradford, and sex workers rights advocate Dame Catherine Healy.
“The state of abortion rights in New Zealand is embarrassing,” says Organise Aotearoa spokesperson Kate McIntyre. “The law has been stuck in a state of unacceptable compromise since 1977, and has caused significant stress and grief for those seeking abortions.”
