Description

Five extraordinary women from vastly different cultures: an ex-Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn, a Somali-British anti-FGM activist, a Japanese manga artist, a German ex-nun, and an Indian sex educator working to promote love marriages, are all confronting the way culture and religion shape women’s relationships to sex and pleasure. Through conversation, education, and art, these women aim to shift the power balance that has disenfranchised them and regain control of their own bodies.

 

Both screenings followed by a conversation with Debra Kaufmanfounding director of the Women’s Studies department at Northeastern University
