Director Statement

"Women bleed. Get over it. Taboos surrounding women’s health and sexuality are harmful to women. Women should be able to openly talk about hormones, bra straps, workplace parity, and body issues. Women should be able to enjoy sex without being slut-shamed. Women should be paid the same wage as their male counterparts. Women should have fair representation in the media, and the ability to show a little armpit hair without having “F*** you, feminism” appear in the Instagram comments.

The purpose of creating “WOMANHOOD: The Series” is to help break the taboos associated with the female experience, allowing a venue for us to share stories related to female bodies and identities. The series gives us an opportunity to laugh at the challenges we face regularly. Our hope is that this project will contribute to more women’s voices in the media; normalizing diverse women on screen, women behind the scenes of the film industry, and women in comedy in order to empower more to share their stories.”
