Dublin march on International Women's Day

Pro-Choice film showing Wednesday 5 March

To celebrate International Women's day on Saturday the 8th of March Cork Womens Right to Choose Group group are teaming up with Crawford Film Society to host a film screening event night on Wednesday the 5th of March in the Crawford College of Art and Design. The films will be shown in the downstairs lecture theatre at 6pm - look out for the posters we will have up around the campus.

We will be screening the controversial documentary 50,000 Secret Journeys, commissioned by RTE in 1994. the film features interviews with three Irish women speaking openly and on camera about their personal experience of abortion for the first time on Irish television. The film was deemed to be ‘unbalanced’ by RTE management who decided not to broadcast the documentary the day before it was due to be transmitted in March 1994.

We will also be screening If These Walls Could Talk, a 1996 HBO film staring Cher ,Demi Moore and Sissy Spacek. The movie examines the abortion issue through three stories set in different eras - 50s, 70s and 90s.
It was a surprise success, making it to the highest rated HBO film ever produced.

There will be a fundraising raffle on the night, a brief talk on where Ireland stands on abortion rights and a question and answer session following the films.
There will also be some popcorn, drinks and sweets provided free of charge.

Hope to see you there :)
