Episode 20 features Dr Fiona Bloomer, a Lecturer in the School of Applied Social and Policy Sciences at Ulster University. Dr Bloomer has centred her research on gender issues, with a particular focus on abortion including: abortion policy, abortion stigma, faith and abortion. In the recording, I spoke to Fiona about the findings from a recent all Ireland study on abortion as a workplace issue. Here is a link to the report and the citation for the work is:
