Pain, Pills & Women's Health

Womanhood is not Suffering nor is it Pain

It is a joy to be a woman and yet most women are plagued by sexual and reproductive health issues often times invisible such as endometriosis, adenomyosis and uterine fibroids without an understanding from majority of society of what they go through.

Most women are beaten into silence through the shame of stigma and remain so by consciously and unconsciously believing the erroneous idea that womanhood is pain and that to be a woman is to be strong and to suffer silently.

 

             This idea is wrong, this idea shames woman and teaches them that                           womanhood equates suffering.

Aim

Our goal with this documentary is to show this and otherwise by encouraging women to own themselves; their light and their darkness; their pain and their lack of it.

It does this through the provision of a nuanced look at the realities of women with sexual and reproductive health issues such as uterine fibroids and endometriosis. Particularly, it follows the journey of one woman and how the symptom of pelvic pain affects differing aspects of her life such as her career, relationships, mental health and emotional state.

      Most importantly, it is to show women that it is time to make visible those                                              invisible illnesses and push for solutions.
