The Irish Times Women’s Podcast presents: The People Have Spoken

On May 25th Irish people voted on whether the 8th amendment to our constitution – which effectively outlaws abortion in Ireland – would be retained or repealed. The outcome of this historic referendum will be discussed at this live recording of The Irish Times Women’s Podcast on the Woodland Stage. Join host Kathy Sheridan for a post-referendum discussion with REPEAL Project’s Anna Cosgrave, co-director of the Together For Yes campaign Ailbhe Smyth and more. Mixing passion and sexual politics, the conversation will look back at the campaign, the coverage and the result and ask: what next for Mná na hÉireann? With musical guests Pow Pig.
