In this 90 minute program, Poppy and Amelia discuss their respective approaches to creative abortion storytelling as activism. Amelia focuses on the emergence and evolution of #ShoutYourAbortion, which begun as a viral hashtag and subsequently evolved into a full- edged movement. Poppy talks about how being a queer woman of color infuenced how she documented her abortion story in the short film Names of Women, and why intersectionality is essential in the conversation about reproductive rights. The presenters will then lead students in a talk-back and engage students in a conversation about why changing the way we talk about abortion has the power to change lives and legislation.
