Seminar: Dr Rosemary Lucy Hill – Persuasive Data: the use of data and visualisation in abortion campaigning

Data visualisation has been argued to have the power to ‘change the world’, implicitly for the better, but when it comes to abortion, both sides make moral claims to ‘good’. Drawing on her recent research, Hill argues that data visualisations are being used as a hindrance to women’s access to abortion, and that the critique of such visualisations needs to come from feminists, as well as the data visualisation community.
