Monday 19 March: Birth Control: A revolution in our time
As Philip Larkin put it in his poem Annus Mirabilis: “Sexual intercourse began/ In nineteen sixty-three”. Dilys Cossey, local resident and Durning Friend, will be talking about how her working life fitted in to Larkin’s big discovery. After abortion law reform (1967) came three decades working for the provision of contraception on the NHS, young people’s advisory services, and the legalisation of embryo research and its impact on assisted conception. An international campaigner, she was founder Administrator of the All-party Parliamentary Group on Population, Development and Reproductive Health.
6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone is welcome. There is no admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.
