Please joins us for a conversation with Shelby Hadden, a documentary filmmaker.  She will be discussing her film, Tightly Wound.

About the Film:  "It is estimated that 6% of those with vaginas will have vaginismus at some point in their lives, but it’s impossible to determine an exact number since shame and embarrassment keep so many women from seeking medical care. Telling my story will be very important for these women and their loved ones because stories like it aren’t out there. I wish I had had access to this information and could have heard from women with similar experiences – maybe if I had, I could have found treatment sooner, or maybe I would have felt less alone."
