Women’s March 2017

womens-marchIf you need a break from the intensity of the weekend, but still want to focus on something positive about our future, consider watching a film that reflects one of the Unity Principles from today’s Women’s March on Washington (and sister marches around the globe).  I’ll list links to film lists for each of their categories to get you started. From the March’s site,

Unity Principles

We believe that Women’s Rights are Human Rights and Human Rights are Women’s Rights. We must create a society in which women – including Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women – are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.

Ending Violence: TogetherforGirls lists 8 films on gender-based violence against women.
Reproductive Rights: Urge creates 7 documentaries on abortion you can watch streaming right now.
LGBTQIA Rights: Nonfics posts 10 great docs on LGBTQ History.
Worker’s Rights: Bentonville Film Festival selects 10 films about women fighting for human rights.
Civil Rights: Bustle curates 7 films about the Civil Rights Movement.
Disability Rights: Wheelchair Diaries focuses on 5 films on Netflix about people with disabilities.
Immigrant Rights: Indiewire’s 10 Essential Films About the Immigrant Experiencee.
Environmental Justice: Mother Nature Network features the Top 10 environmental films of all time.
