International Women’s Day Event ‘Championing Choice & Safety: A Womxn’s World in Three Parts’. Options for Sexual Health and Battered Women Support Services are pleased to partner in the presentation and world premiere of the series ‘Her Story (In Three Parts), a short film anthology by local writer/director/actor Camille Hollett-French.
Our two organizations have chosen to work together on this project to advance the conversation of the value of choice and safety in the world of all women. These films explore issues of abortion, incarceration and sexual violence through the eyes of three young women in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
Moderated by journalist Charmaine De Silva, the event aims to centre women’s resilience and the role that community supports and services can play in creating safety through choice. Dialogue panels after each film will allow for challenging conversations to be elevated by subject-matter experts and folks with lived experiences.
The evening will be held at the Djavad Mofwfaghian Theatre at the SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in Vancouver. The event runs 7-9 PM, doors open at 6:15 PM. Tickets are a sliding scale of $5 – $15. We invite attendees to pay what they can.
There is also an after party meet-and-greet with cast from 9:30-11:00 PM. (additional purchase) Please share this with all the feminists you know!
Get your tickets: for general admission, sliding scale ($5 – $15); for after party, a minimum $25
