Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume. 33, Number 13. 1970



Gerard Curry's impressive and cogent case for New Zealand acceptance of the present British abortion law was so reasonable and unhysterical that it drove the NZBC camera crew from the teach-in, after one hour of filming, never to return. All in all, except for the lack of publicity, a modest success for Women Liberation.

The mornings session of the teach-in was devoted to the questions of abortion and equal pay. It says much about the reason for the Women's Liberation Movement regarding itself as part of a wider movement for world social revolution, that the case for legalised abortion, as albatross around any politicians neck, was presented cogently and inteligibly, with superlative documentation by Gerard Curry.
