Film: The Purity Myth: The Virginity Movement
Fem Flicks Film Series presentation of The Purity Myth
The United States is obsessed with virginity from the media to schools to government agencies. Analyzing cultural stereotypes and media messages, filmmaker Jessica Valenti reveals the overt and hidden ways our society links a woman's worth to her sexuality rather than to values like honesty, kindness, and altruism. (45 min)
The Fem Flicks Film Series begins its sixth season this year. The spring 2012 series includes four outstanding films that explore gender and the complex issues women face worldwide.
