A defiant feminist mosaic on the ways that science enters our culture and defines what it is to be a woman. At age 30, Lynne Sachs wondered why so much about our culture simply made her feel bad about her body. She wrote in her diary, shot film with her friends and collected archival footage from educational films on menstruation and child birth. By giving new meaning to the “body of the body” and the “body of the mind”, she works to dismantle those stereotypes of women rooted in Western patriarchy.
