USA, 2019. Directed by Barbara Miller. 101 min. NR

Barbara Miller’s feature documentary #FEMALE PLEASURE portrays five courageous, smart, and self-determined women, fighting for sexual liberation and autonomy for women and breaking the silence imposed by their archaic-patriarch societies and religious communities. But their victory comes at a high price: they all have experienced public defamation, threats, and prosecutions, have been excommunicated by the society they grew up in and even received death threats by religious leaders and fanatics. In solidarity with International Women’s Day our community partners at Positive Living Niagara will host further discussion following the film. #EachforEqual #IWD2020​

“An empowering statement for women, no matter their cultural or religious background, to reclaim their bodies and celebrate their sexuality without shame or suffering.” – Candice Frederick, The Wrap
