I was delighted to have presented some findings from Contextualising Abortion this week at the University of Cardiff for a workshop called ‘Stigma, Health and Inequality.’



The paper was about how abortion stigma was talked about and experienced by the women in my study, and I was arguing for a greater consideration of class when thinking about this type of stigma. The paper can be found here, along with the presentation slides.


I was also presenting some findings at a Gender and Contraception conference in Paris in December, this time about the ways in which responsibility was talked about in my interviews with women.

To find out more about the findings of the study, you’ll be able to access my thesis soon via the University of Sussex. For now, you can find a published paper on the theoretical framework of the research (the most boring bit!) here.
