The 7th World Congress on Women’s Mental Health concludes in Dublin today, International Women’s Day. The organisations and individuals participating in the Congress are determined to advance women’s mental health and wellbeing across the globe.
In light of Ireland’s draconian abortion regime and violation of women’s right to bodily integrity and self-determination, the Congress today released ‘The Dublin Declaration’, a declaration seeking to guarantee that abortion services are available and accessible in a manner that ensures women’s autonomy and decision-making is respected, in line with the best international health practice and in fulfilment of women’s human rights.
We worked with co-host of the event, the National Women’s Council of Ireland, creating a poster that celebrates the Dublin Declaration as a manifesto calling for women’s rights in Ireland. We wanted the poster to be simple and legible, and were influenced by historic protest posters and workers’ rights proclamations to create these striking but simple designs, printed on four different coloured cards.
Happy International Women’s Day from everyone at Piquant.
