    At the heart of this research is an online, four week, Reproductive Rights and Reproductive Justice course that was designed and delivered specifically for this study. This research tells the story of this course including its significance during a historical time when reproductive rights are under attack across the globe and when reproductive oppressions persist in Ireland despite a significant relaxation in legal obstacles since 2018. Primary finding are drawn from the insights of activists who completed the programme and who opted-in to accompanying research allowing me to draw directly from pre and post anonymous questionnaires. Overall I assess the role of feminist pedagogy in creating a more just society were reproductive oppressions are eradicated. The study is qualitative and methodologically draws from feminist critical theory and autoethnography. Give the contested nature of many of the concepts I use, it articulates my understanding of feminist pedagogy and presents the work through a Reproductive Justice Framework to unpack a specific research question on the ways feminist pedagogy can inform, support and equip reproductive rights activists
