這些形象物象徵了愛爾蘭對女性的不公對待,在列隊被社群媒體拍攝後,他們走上利墨 里克的街頭,沈默地遊行。

5月25日,愛爾蘭多數人投票決定要推翻墮胎法,愛爾蘭的墮胎法律曾是全世界最嚴格的。憲法第八條修正案強化了終止妊娠的禁令,甚至強暴或亂倫懷孕都無法合法墮胎。此次主張廢除這條法律的社會運動使用了社群媒體來傳播訊息,並上街以表演與劇場演出的形式表達訴求。

Figures representing Ireland’s dark treatment of women line up for social media cameras, before parading silently through the streets of Limerick.

On 25 May, Ireland voted by a large majority to overturn its abortion laws, which were among the most restrictive in the world. The movement to repeal the Eighth Amendment to the constitution, which reinforced a ban on terminations, even those resulting from rape and incest, used social media platforms to spread its message, and took the argument to the streets in the form of demonstrations and theatrical spectacle.
