On Abortion : And the Repercussions of Lack of Access, Hardback Book

On Abortion : And the Repercussions of Lack of Access Hardback


On Abortion is the first part of Laia Abril's new long-term project, A History of Misogyny.

The work was first exhibited at Les Rencontres in Arles in 2016 and awarded the Prix de la Photo Madame Figaro and the Fotopress Grant.

Abril documents and conceptualises the dangers and damage caused by women's lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion.

She draws on the past to highlight the long, continuing erosion of women's reproductive rights through to the present-day, weaving together questions of ethics and morality, to reveal a staggering series of social triggers, stigmas, and taboos around abortion that have been largely invisible until now.
