Speaking out about common but silenced experiences of abortion not only galvanized the women’s liberation movement, it helped to change the legal and social status of women in the US.

In this 60-minute session, Merle Hoffman will discuss the role of writing in her own experience fighting for women’s rights and why telling the truth about our lives is such a powerful tool. Her remarks will be followed by a 15-minute writing prompt and 20-25 minutes to share the writing with one another.
