On 22 May 1971 members of the Irish Women's Liberation Movement travel to Belfast by train to buy contraceptives as a protest against the law which forbids the importation and sale of contraceptives in the Republic of Ireland.
This is the story of Irish women who defied Irish law to bring contraceptives to the Republic of Ireland and marks a landmark moment in the Irish women's movement.
The report includes an interview with Pat Ledwith about purchasing the contraceptives and bringing them through customs. Nell McCafferty can be spotted briefly in the crowd.
At Connolly Station in Dublin, where the Belfast train has returned with the women on board, demonstrators chant "let them though" and "enforce the constitution" at the customs officials. Nell McCafferty can be spotted briefly in the crowd. Triumphant women pass through the barrier holding their contraceptives in the air.
