Update #4: Let's keep going!

Hey everyone, 

Thanks again so much for funding this project. Let's keep going! We're over half way there now, and I'm so grateful to all of you for supporting this. It's natural when loads of people jump on board that the momentum slows a little, but I'm hopeful that you will continue to spread the word. 

Behind the scenes, I've been busy recruiting some more amazing contributors for this book, and will be releasing some of those names in the next update.

I'm sure many of you have been keeping an eye on the events at the Citizen's Assembly and the horrific details emerging from Tuam in Galway of the last few days. 

I wrote my column in the Irish Times this week about Tuam, which you can read here:

It's high time that women in Ireland have control over their own bodies, that we expose and confront this legacy of secrecy and shame, and assert ourselves as free women in a secular country. 

Please continue to share the details of this project so we can tell the stories of this #repealthe8th movement. 

Thank you,

Dear Una
Would you let me know if you are still accepting texts for this book please. I'm at and have a piece I'd be interested in having considered for inclusion. Much appreciated, and will be pledging support.
