Have you ever wanted to talk to someone about abortion, but didn’t know how to go about it?

The Everyday Stories project is about facilitating those conversations through workshops in towns and villages across the country ahead of a referendum on the Eighth Amendment in the coming months.

The project is gathering the personal accounts of women who have experienced abortion and allowing them to be used to aid group discussions on the topic, organised in association with the campaign.

Caoimhe Anglin is one of the brains behind the project. On the latest Women's Podcast, she spoke to Róisín Ingle about Everyday Stories and explained why the workshops are not about convincing someone to vote one way or another, but about facilitating open, non-judgemental conversations on abortion within a safe space.
