The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is delighted to announce the
launch of a series of pilot collections for the Archiving Reproductive
Health project, in an online event on International Women’s Day 2022.
‘Digital Preservation of Reproductive Health Resources: Archiving the
8th’ (Archiving Reproductive Health) is a project funded by the Wellcome
Trust and carried out by the DRI to preserve and publish digital
materials relating to campaigns for reproductive justice in Ireland,
especially during the campaign to repeal the Eighth Amendment in 2018.
Working with key stakeholders including the Abortion Rights Campaign,
Together for Yes, Terminations for Medical Reasons, Coalition to Repeal
the Eighth, and many others, ARH has gathered and preserved a selection
of digital objects and research data, including social media, that tells
part of the story of this historic campaign.
These collections will be launched online on International Women’s Day,
8 March 2022, at 12:00 pm. All are welcome to attend and registration is
