In Honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It is estimated that 25% of undergraduate women are sexually assaulted while in college. This startling statistic is evidence for how important it is to raise awareness for women in communities across the nation.

Emmy nominated BRAVE MISS WORLD is a startlingly honest portrayal of how personal tragedy can be transformed into an awareness campaign against sexual violence. In 1998, Linor Abargil was raped while working as a model in Milan. Over the course of five years we follow Abargil on a mission to confront the trauma of her past.

Buy BRAVE MISS WORLD at full price and receive 50% off several related titles. A robust section within our collection addresses sexual assault, and other forms of violence against women. See titles and ordering details.


On films with at least one female director, women comprised 53% of writers. On films with exclusively male directors, women accounted for 10% of writers. -Celluloid Ceiling: Behind-the-Scenes Employment of Women on the Top 100, 250, and 500 Films of 2015

Sale! REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD


THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood - one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.

Special Offer! Buy THE REVIVAL at full price and receive select titles for $99. See titles and details.
