The Feminist Lens is honored to share the stories from the new book “Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors” by Anne Ream of the Voices and Faces Project.
Sharing stories of sexual assault gives us an opportunity to heal and give strength to others who are suffering.
“Behind the story I tell is the one I don’t. Behind the story you hear is the one I wish I could make you hear.”

If you missed our show on WFMT at 9:30 pm May 16th we present an encore our latest Feminist Lens show!
American Healthcare: Is it violence against women? From reproductive health to skyrocketing insurance premiums, being a woman in America, with or without insurance, is a crap shoot to access to healthcare.
Why is simply being a woman a pre-existing condition?
We will talk with artists, filmmakers and musicians on how they deal with a class and gender tiered healthcare system and how it has affected their art and lives.
Do not miss this show!
