“Vessel” focuses on the work of Women on Waves, an organization founded by Dutch physician and activist Rebecca Gomperts. The organization, founded in 1999, aims to provide medical abortions in international waters to women whose countries restrict or prohibit the procedure.
The screening, which begins at 6:30 pm and will be followed by a discussion, is part of the “Controversy & Conversation” series, a collaboration between the Austin Public Library and the Humanities Institute’s Difficult Dialogues Program at the University of Texas. More information online.
