Elevan O'Clock #26 - Orla Howard, Deputy Chair of Ireland's Marriage Equality campaign

Orla Howard was the Deputy Chair of the Irish Marriage Equality campaign.  She was in Australia to introduce the documentary about the campaign called "The 34th". 

"The 34th’ tells the story of the driven and dedicated people who formed Marriage Equality in Ireland, and developed it into a highly effective grassroots force with one clear goal in mind - the extension of Civil Marriage to same-sex couples."

Hear about the love story that ignited the campaign and how successful the campaign was. 

Orla is a passionate fighter for making Ireland a better place for all and currently working on the campaign to amended the Irish constitution a second time.  This time to grant Irish women the access to legal abortions.
