"How a group of women helped bring about abortion reform. In the spring of 1970, 17 (mostly) young women set out from Vancouver in a big yellow convertible, a Volkswagen bus, and a pickup truck. It was called the Abortion Caravan. Five thousand kilometres later, they led a rally of 500 women on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, "occupied" the Prime Minister's front lawn, chained themselves to their chairs in the visitors' galleries, and shut down Parliament—the first and only time this was accomplished."-- Provided by publisher.
