When this film was made, abortion was still illegal in France. A product of the Militant Cinema wave, this film takes you into the core of the major concerns women had regarding abortion during this particular period in time. Feminists saw the ban on abortion as another restriction on women and began to take action, including inviting an audience to the scene of all-women abortion operation. This shocking performance was a form of ritual and a declaration stating that women were to no longer be passive objects controlled by legal institutions and medical science. Instead, women could become independent subjects who take care of their own health, obtaining the proper information to make their own decisions. (Nam In-young)
