The Medea Project’s Birthright? is a searing dramatic narrative of deep connections between women’s health and reproductive rights and the stark realities of rape, of living with HIV and of women finding their voice in a male-dominated world that often demeans and devalues them. The Birthright? video documentary weaves the creation of the Birthright? live performance with the stories of its creators – women finding empowerment through telling the truth – telling the truth to themselves, to each other and to the world.
