Rise Up And Repeal: A Poetic Archive of the 8th Amendment

Sarah Bernstein, Sarah Brazil

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology


On 25 May 2018, the Irish people voted by an overwhelming majority to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland, and instead to add the wording, "Provision may be made by law for the regulation of termination of pregnancy." Bringing together poetry and other writing from Ireland and beyond, Rise Up & Repeal celebrates Ireland's historic choice, honours the hard work of consciousness-raising which helped to make it happen, and lets many voices speak, collectively and individually, about what this day means to them.
