Attitudes toward women range from sanctified to desecrated. Women choose to perpetuate toxicity or to demand dignity. This dynamic is played out in relationships with self, with family, with community, and with the world. From Myanmar to Uganda, Bilbao to Los Angeles, the films selected to Exposed and Uncovered: The War on Women fix our gaze upon the globally acknowledged need to redefine and re-establish the relationships within and among women, and between men and women.
