Speaking of IMELDA is on a referendum road trip asking activists and citizens across the republic: should Ireland continue to make England the Legal Destination for Abortion?
In Galway, Speaking of IMELDA have an exclusive interview with Erin from ‘In Her Shoes’ - a social media page that allows women in Ireland to anonymously share their personal experiences of abortion. They are also regaled by rural queer comic, Breda Larkin, who sang a song naming all the words used for women’s vagina while wearing her own customised vagina mask (eat your heart out Eve Ensler!).
In the City of Savita, they welcome Ruth Coppinger TD, in Galway to launch the socialist feminist group, Rosa’s campaign for Yes. A student at NUIG, reminds us that a few decades back, a single mother and her child might have been consigned to the mother and baby home in Tuam, where Catherine Cordless exposed extensive cruelty and neglect.
In true IMELDA style, there is a detour to Ennis to inspect the cattle mart - could they be implying an association between the treatment of livestock in Ireland with prevailing law on reproductive rights there?
