Film Screening – Vessel

As part of the Remaking Reproduction conference, ReproSoc (Reproductive Sociology Research Group, Cambridge) will host a special screening of Vessel on Friday 29 June.

Vessel is a documentary film by Diana Whitten about the work of Women on Waves, a Dutch pro-choice organisation founded by the physician Dr Rebecca Gomperts.

The film focuses on the work of Women on Waves and follows Gomperts as she sails a ship around the world and provides abortions at sea for women who have no legal alternative. Through years of successes and setbacks, we witness her create an underground network of emboldened, informed activists who trust women to handle abortion themselves.

We will be joined by Gomperts, who will give a presentation prior to the screening about abortion politics today, including a reflection on the recent referendum in Ireland. There will be a Q&A afterwards.
