Hi everyone! If you hadn’t already guessed from the picture, this week we’re having a discussion on Reproductive Rights.
Come and join in the debate on Tuesday at Union House Room 1.31 at 5pm OR Thursday at Arts 2.03 at 5pm. We’d love to see you there!
We’ll be talking about a range of issues relating to this and how it relates to the lives of those living in the UK and also elsewhere in the world. We would like to stress that, as with all our discussion groups, we cannot guarantee that this will be a safe space and there may be topics discussed that some members find triggering. If this is the case, you are, of course, welcome to leave at any time if you feel uncomfortable.
That said, we hope as many of you can come as possible. You are of course welcome to bring friends, housemates, lovers, etc who are not a part of the Society too – anyone interested in the discussion is encouraged to join in!
Here is some background reading to get you all thinking and introduce some of the topics we will be covering:
