Access to sexual heath and female reproductive facilities continues to be a social injustice and struggle faced by women all across the globe. In Prince Edward Island, Canada - a place that is considered to be a leader in human rights and social justice - there is no sexual health clinic or female centred resource/health centre focused on female reproductive and sexual health. In 2013 - Island women must travel off Island to receive a full range of sexual and reproductive services and consistently face six to twelve month wait periods to see a health specialist trained in the female body.
This mini documentary is the beginning of a larger project that brings together Islander's thoughts and opinions on this topic. Presented here are the faces of women listening to their peers, neighbours, and community members expressing their opinions and thoughts on the topic "Access to female reproductive and sexual health facilities." - As the documentary grows the faces will diversify in race, age and identified genders.
