New exhibition challenges abortion stigma through clothing
26 Oct 2017

Oxford University researchers have teamed up with peers at the Open University to create an innovative exhibition that will challenge abortion stigma through clothing and stimulate conversation around the Abortion Act, fifty years after it was passed.

My Body My Life, a new research-based exhibition, that challenges abortion stigma through clothing, will run next month at the Old Fire Station, Oxford, from 7-11 November 2017.

Designed to look like a fashion boutique, the unique exhibition uses clothing to bring a range of abortion experiences to life, representing just some of the nearly 200,000 abortions that take place in the UK every year.
