Conference: Abortion rights – let’s talk about it

Oct 21, 2022

Although abortion is legal in Italy, low-threshold access to safe interventions is often impeded.

The conference aims to be an opportunity for exchange and discussion on how to elevate abortion to be a universal human right. After the contributions of various experts on the ethical, health, preventive and legal implications of abortion, the audience will actively participate in discussion sessions.

Experts:

  • Mona Holm (Director of the Women’s Museum Norway Kvinnemuseet, initiator of the exhibition “SHHH! Stories about Abortion and Sexuality” https://shhh-stories.com/)
  • Carla Reale (lawyer, expert in constitutional and bio-law, member of the Equality Commission of the Province of Trento)
  • Esther Redolfi (philosopher, PhD in ethics and women’s studies)
  • Silvia Camin (Chairwoman of AIED Bolzano)
  • Loredana Costanza (Vice-principal of the Department of Gynaecology & Obstetrics, Bolzano Hospital).

Participating organisations:

  • Feminist Infocafè Merano
  • Women’s Museum Merano
  • Frauenmarsch-Donne in marcia
  • Association “Frauen gegen Gewalt-Donne contro la violenza” Merano
  • Family Counselling Centre AIED Bolzano, Academy of German-Italian Studies Merano
  • Women’s Museum Norway, Women’s Office Province of Bolzano
