Campaigning Artist Dame Rego Remembered

21/06/2022

Lesbian feminists, abortion rights campaigners and reproductive freedom activists have been paying tribute to Portuguese-British artist Dame Paula Rego, who has passed on at the age of eighty seven.  Rego was, alongside the gay artist David Hockney, a key member of the London Group of artists.  Wikipedia notes that  Rego, who was honoured by numerous institutions and made a Dame of the British Empire in 2010, spent a great deal of her professional output campaigning for women’s reproductive rights, and openly addressed abortion.  Her works are credited with helping secure a victory for the pro-choice side in 2007 referendum in her native Portugal.  Rego died after a short illness on 8 June.
