Ms Feltham-King will present a paper based on her Master’s research entitled, ‘The significance of gender in the abortion debate: A content analysis of South African newspaper articles’. Ms Feltham-King was granted a distinction for her Master’s degree and has already published a paper based on this research in the international journal, Culture, Health & Sexuality. When asked for her reaction, Ms Feltham-King indicated that the selection of her abstract for the finalist presentations was unexpected, but that she welcomed the opportunity to showcase her work in this forum.
