“An important contribution to the debate on the sexual self-determination of women.”
SPIELFILM.DE

In this frank and inspiring documentary, Barbara Miller chronicles five women from different countries and different cultures who have one thing in common: they’re a danger to the patriarchy. These extraordinary women fight for sexual liberation and autonomy beyond religious rules and cultural barriers, from a Somali anti-FGM activist in the UK, to a Japanese artist and self-described “vagina defender”, to women fighting religious oppression around the world. Their freedom comes at a high price, with each facing physical threats, legal action and public shaming, but with determination and poise they stand up and fight the politicisation and demonisation of women’s bodies, stepping forward as symbols of hope and self-determination and proving that pleasure is not a dirty word.

This film is restricted to persons aged 18+.
