The Sobremesa Podcast - A podcast by The Sobremesa Podcast


In Spain this week there has been a lot of discussion around the age of gaining consent to get an abortion, should you need your parent's consent if you are between 16-18? This law says no. Internationally we have seen headline after headline talking about 'period leave' but unlike the Daily Mail says it is not unlimited.  Deb Madden is a feminist academic who joins Alan do discuss the history of the law, the wider global fight for women's rights and why Spain stands at the forefront of the global feminist movement.
