Two major figures in the movement discuss creative abortion storytelling as activism. Amelia Bonow created #ShoutYourAbortion to give women a means of telling their personal stories, which went viral and evolved into a full- edged campaign. Poppy Liu documented her abortion story in the short Names of Women, and will relate how being a queer woman of color influenced her storytelling and why intersectionality is essential in the discourse about reproductive rights.
