On 16th of June 2018 Norway was celebrating the 40th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion. The event took place in front of the Parliament, Oslo. Speaches were made by pioneers from the political struggle 40 years ago, and by women working for women’s rights to decide about their own bodies in today’s society – both inside Norway and internationally.

The Kvinnemuseet in Kongvinger, Norway was participating in the celebrations.
