Wednesday: a Google Hangout with creators and advocates about Obvious Child

Feministing presents a google hangout about Obvious Child

We’re excited to announce that Feministing is partnering with Planned Parenthood Action Fund and the 1 in 3 Campaign to bring you a live chat about the abortion rom-com, Obvious Child. You may have noticed we’re fans of the movie around these parts. Obvious Child is a major breakthrough in terms of how abortion – and stories about women in general – are told in Hollywood.

On Wednesday, Feministing’s Lori Adelman will host a Google Hangout with two of the film’s creators – writer and director Gillian Robespierre and producer Elisabeth Holm- and two advocates – Dawn Laguens from Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Julia Reticker-Flynn from Advocates for Youth.

You can watch the chat on Wednesday, July 9 at 3pm ET here: You can also join the conversation and submit questions using the hashtag #ObviousChat.
