Reproductive Rights at Risk: Films for Women’s History Month and Election Year 2012

2012 is an important election year. Issues surrounding women’s reproductive rights have become pivotal by candidates for various offices. Often voters become polarized, in part because they have little or no accurate information. Across the country, state by state, legislatures are passing laws that make it increasingly difficult for women to obtain reproductive health care, breast exams, affordable birth control and safe legal abortions. Most voters actually do want to make informed choices about candidates and the policies they represent.

The three-film series CHOICE: Then and Now, directed and produced by OSCAR‐nominated, EMMY‐winning filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman follows the dramatic history of women’s reproductive rights in the USA (to read a more detailed description of each of the films, please scroll down).
These films will be featured on Public Access stations during Women’s History Month in March and throughout this election year 2012.

We invite you to join the list of stations that will air one or more of the films in this documentary series.
