Women and girls just want to have fundamental human rights! That’s what we hear in this podcast. Yet many states restrict their reproductive rights and regulate abortion alongside murder in their criminal codes.

This podcast takes us to Ireland to find out how they managed to liberalise a very strict 8th amendment. We learn about 11-year old Lucia, an Argentine denied her right to abortion, and about how Malawi is dragging its abortion laws out of the 1800s. Final stop is China where despite continued forced abortions and strict family policies women are discovering their human rights.

A podcast by Abby d’Arcy and Marlene Melchior.
