Honored to be screening Names of Women alongside all of these brilliant women filmmakers at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL.
“We are not asking for your permission to exist, we are letting you know that we’re here, we’re irrepressible, and we’re dancing. We are making up for lost time.”
— Amelia Bonow on the #ShoutYourAbortion philosophy in Bust Magazine
Amelia Bonow (#ShoutYourAbortion) and Poppy Liu (Collective Sex) present an evening of abortion storytelling, art, and conversation.
Amelia focuses on the emergence and evolution of #ShoutYourAbortion, which evolved from a viral hashtag into a full-fledged movement.
Poppy's poetry performance uses art as spirit practice and storytelling as a mode of healing. She talks about how being a queer first-generation yellow-american woman of color influenced her abortion story, documented in the short art film "Names of Women."
Amelia and Poppy will then facilitate a talkback about why changing the way we talk about abortion has the power to change lives and legislation.

Very honored to be 1 of 50 short films chosen out of 5,000 to be screened at Les Femmes Underground Film Festival.
From their website: "Les Femmes Underground International is a film festival centered on the subversive, unique, and innovative. LEFUFF, showcases artists from all walks of life creating work which redefines the manner in which women are represented in mainstream cinema...
As feminists, we believe it is our responsibility to empower new generations of young women to generate work which breaks away from society’s gendered roles. Les Femmes Underground seeks to premier first time under-represented emerging feminist film-makers and artists."
