In 2013, Macedonia’s Christian Democrat party adopted a new law on termination of pregnancy restricting a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion. Macedonia’s new abortion law has generated controversy not only for the non-scientific, degrading manner women and their physicians must secure approval to have an abortion, but also for the questionable manner in which the law was approved.
The Women’s International Perspective, a publication of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, celebrates International Women’s Day with Women, Media, and Social Change, a fundraising luncheon to share The WIP’s accomplishments and our vision for the future. Funds raised at the luncheon will support both The WIP and a transformative collaboration between graduate assistant English instructors and professional women journalists worldwide.
