TRIGGER WARNING: In this episode, there will be descriptions of abortions, medical and self-induced, as well as mentions of sexual assault. If any of that is distressing, please feel free to stop listening, you can always come back to it at a later time.

Your favourite friendly intersectional feminist podcast is back for a Third Season, and what a topic to kick it off with. Just a heads up, we've changed our episode structure slightly; to get more in-depth on our guests' stories, we'll be covering a topic across three episodes with one guest in each.

For this series of episodes we’re exploring reproductive health, and given the conversation that’s going on worldwide right now about abortions, it seems only right we start with that.

To help us understand the history in the UK and where we’re at today with it, we’ve got activist Diane Munday on, a woman who was instrumental to legalising abortion in 1967 with the Abortion Act.

If you want to help out in any way, please consider nowforni.uk where you can send an email to your MP urging them to act for abortion access in Northern Ireland, or if you’re in the position to donate, the Yellowhammer fund provides funding for anyone seeking care at one of Alabama’s three abortion clinics, as well as helping with lodgings and travel.

Carry on the conversation with us over on Twitter @KickKyriarchy, or follow our new insta page @KickingTheKyriarchy for all show illustrations and other 10/10 feminist content.

You can also drop us an email kickingthekyriarchy@gmail.com

Join us next time where we’ll be exploring what it’s like to access an abortion in the UK today.
