Mum's In Prison
A mother of six and convicted heroin dealer talks about the effect her prison sentences had on her family. She says her own choices led to her ending up where she did, despite the fact her father was also a criminal. Teenage pregnancy, domestic violence and drug abuse - is she the only one to blame?
Rape: Human Nature
Is rape instinctive to humans? To what extent can we blame rape on our genetic make-up, or our general human nature? Is it about a need for power or control, or is it a product of evolution that allows men to spread their seed? This film offers a variety of perspectives on this controversial topic.
Sex Or Power
This film debates the extent to which rape is a product of sexual desire, or a desire for power over another human being. Rape is the most degrading way of stripping another person of their self-hood and is often committed out of a desire for control rather than having anything to do with sex.
Laura Bates began the Everyday Sexism Project to highlight how often sexist behaviour and even sexual assaults go unchallenged and unreported. In this film women tell their distressing stories of everyday sexism, and invite us all to help make it stop by shouting back.
