Reproductive Justice Warriors speak out about Childbirth: Control of our Bodies! Control of our Lives!
with special guest speakers

?Obstetric violence? is a term coined by the birthing rights movement to expose the dehumanising medical control of childbirth, which denies women their right to make their own decisions throughout their pregnancy and birth.

Had enough of being treated as an incubator? Fed up with empty words? Want to make real change? Bring your voice and your demands!

Hear our special guests:
* Lisa Barrett, birthing rights advocate, mother and former registered midwife
* Tanya Koolmatrie, proud Ngarrindjeri woman, mother, activist and sociologist
* Tanja Po****, childbirth rights activist, petitioner and mother
* Rhoda Marie, mother, feminist and all-round rowdy woman
* Janet Fraser, feminist, writer and activist

Open mic time for questions and stories:
Share your ideas and demands in a ?Where to from here? dialogue. Let?s start building a movement to win back our rights in childbirth!

Afternoon tea will be provided for a donation of $8.00. Everyone is welcome!

We also ask for donations toward our interstate speakers? travel expenses. Any amount left over will contribute toward RW?s reproductive justice work.
