Abortion Rights in Argentina: A Grassroots Fight in the Streets

The vote in Argentina’s national congress tonight will decide the question of the legality of abortion in the country. Due to significant public pressure from mass mobilizations in the streets, the politicians may find their hands are forced and vote to make abortion legal. This movement provides an important model for the international left.

We will be skyping with two socialist feminists from Argentina about how they have engaged in the struggle. Nathalia González Seligra is a member of Congress for the Left and Workers Front and a part of the Partido de Trabajadores Socialistas (Party of Socialist Workers). Andrea D’Atri is the founder of Pan y Rosas (Bread and Roses) the largest socialist feminist organization in Argentina, as well as a member of the PTS.
