A powerful collection of first person narratives, these edited transcripts tell the stories of women who had illegal abortions in Australia from 1930 to 1980. Insightful and compelling, it reveals what women’s lives were like during these times, exploring work life, their relationships with men, treatment by the medical community, and prevailing social attitudes of the day.
