This short film presents a scenario in which men live in a world where they are harassed and abused by women like women are harassed and abused by men, a role reversal of our sexist, patriarchal, male-supremacist society.
The topic of switching gender roles has been explored many times before in comedic form, among them “Tootsie”, “All of Me”, and very incisively in the seriocomic 90’s Ellen Barkin movie, “Switch” but this short film portrays the darker reality of what it is like to live with the daily onslaught of sexual harassment and gender inequality in a way that hits home emotionally and hopefully allows men to gain a modicum of insight and empathy into women’s experience.
The Senate version of the Violence Against Women Act passed the House today, a victory for all women! Women are standing up and demanding action more than ever before–we stood up and voted more women into office and put pressure on this congress to get past the partisan bickering, recognize women’s human rights, and stop the misogynist discrimination against LGBT, Native-American, and immigrant women and sign it! Sisterhood is POWERFUL!!
