Lunafest: Raising funds for breast cancer

Went to Lunafest this past weekend, which is a showcase of short films by women, for women, about women.  100% of the net proceeds go to various charities, with 15% to the Breast Cancer Fund.  If the festival is coming to or near your town, I highly recommend attending.  Check out the website for locations and details on the films.

The nine shorts were amazing, thought provoking, heartbreaking, funny and definitely spark conversation.  I Am a Girl peers into the life of Joppee, a 13 year old girl born as a boy.  Every Mother Counts: Obstetric Fistula documents this deadly yet preventable birth complication that impacts between 50,000-100,000 women each year through interviews in Bangladesh and Tanzania.

Enjoy one of my absolute favorites, How to Be Alone, below or on YouTube

Show women your support!
