Men Who Trust Women: the movie!

Well, movies. Well, documentary shorts.

Earlier this year, I started a tumblr called Men Who Trust Women, as a way to make it clear that despite all the men who are trying to use their political office to restrict reproductive choices, there are in fact plenty of men out there who trust women to make their own healthcare decisions.

I asked men to make themselves heard in the reproductive rights conversation, because the anti-choice men were the only ones speaking up. Men obliged, and sent in their stories, some of them funny, some of them sad, some of them boiling down to, “well, duh, of course this is each woman has to decide for herself.” It was so great.

Now, I’m teaming up with Alexandra Steinmetz, an awesome young feminist filmmaker, to bring some of those stories to life. We’re making a series of documentary shorts, but we need some help to do it. Turns out, filming and editing stuff costs money! We’re using Kickstarter to raise the money, and we sure could use any money you can spare.
