“One in three women in the United States will have an abortion by her 45th birthday. Each woman has her own story and Melissa Madera is willing to listen. Madera, a Laura C. Harris Fellow in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, is the founder of The Abortion Diary podcast online, which inspired her art exhibit, “Artifacts” displayed at the Denison Museum. For her podcast, she travels all over the U.S., and more recently, abroad, and speaks to women who want to share their abortion story. She listens to each woman’s story, records it and posts it online unedited. Listeners hear raw stories from real women who share every emotion and detail about their experience.”
