My So-Called Selfish Life

My So-Called Selfish Life is a revolutionary new documentary about one of our greatest social taboos: choosing not to become a mother. With brisk, cheeky humor and an intersectional lens, the film questions the cultural narratives that shape our identities and shows us what true reproductive freedom can look like–whether we desire children or not. When women have control over their reproductive choices, powerful things happen.

“…striking and imaginative documentary, which addresses this oft-overlooked facet of reproductive justice…” Aviva Dove-Viebahn MS Magazine
