“We are not asking for your permission to exist, we are letting you know that we’re here, we’re irrepressible, and we’re dancing. We are making up for lost time.”
— Amelia Bonow on the #ShoutYourAbortion philosophy in Bust Magazine
Amelia Bonow (#ShoutYourAbortion) and Poppy Liu (Collective Sex) present an evening of abortion storytelling, art, and conversation.
Amelia focuses on the emergence and evolution of #ShoutYourAbortion, which evolved from a viral hashtag into a full-fledged movement.
Poppy's poetry performance uses art as spirit practice and storytelling as a mode of healing. She talks about how being a queer first-generation yellow-american woman of color influenced her abortion story, documented in the short art film "Names of Women."
Amelia and Poppy will then facilitate a talkback about why changing the way we talk about abortion has the power to change lives and legislation.
