    Women protested abortion laws in Texas wearing 'Handmaid's Tale' robes

    If you haven’t read Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale before, it’s follows a dystopian world in which fertile women are forced to become breeders for the rest of society. One bill discussed at the chambers will effectively ban common procedures used for second trimester abortions, and another would allow doctors to withhold information regarding fetal anomlies from pregnant women. Heather Busby, executive director at advocacy group NARAL Pro-Choice Texas told The Huffington Post that the law would effectively allow doctors to “lie to their patients” – the idea being that if a medical professional discovered severe abnormalities and feared the mother might choose to terminate the pregnancy, there wouldn’t be negative consequences for the doctor for failing to tell them.

    Women's March London: Why we took to the streets

    “It feels like everything I stand for is under threat, especially after Trump and Brexit. No sooner had Donald Trump assumed the mantle of the White House than millions of protesters took to the streets in women-led marches across the world. The world is wary of Mr Trump, he’s poised and ready to roll back the years on Women’s reproductive rights, his handpicked cabinet of climate change deniers pose a real threat to the future of our planet, oh, and he’s a well documented racist, homophobe and misogynist who thinks it’s okay to “grab” women “by the pus*y”.

    Women are using their bodies to make a stand against a particular misogynistic comment presidential candidate, Donald Trump made during a taped conversation back in 2005. It is by no means the only sexist comment Trump has made, but this particular statement really got women riled, so much so that they’ve decided to fight back in a pretty unique way. The brainchild of photographer, Anja Shütz, the campaign really started gathering pace over the weekend following a call out that Anja put on Facebook urging other women to take part.

    Supposedly introduced to protect women from oppressive practices, the ban has resulted in women being ordered by police to remove their swimwear in public, and fined for wearing covering clothing on beaches. It shows how illogical it is that individual items of clothing can be worn (legally) individually by a woman, but how as soon as they’re worn in combination, the outfit is breaking the law.
