Imagine you’re eleven years old and labelled the school ¨slut.¨ Where would you turn? What would you do? Emily Lindin turned to her diary, chronicling each and every damaging event. More than a decade later Emily published these entries online and founded The Unslut Project. Devastated by the suicides of Rehtaeh Parsons, Amanda Todd, and Audrie Pott, Emily sought to provide some perspective to girls – more than a decade after her experiences - who currently feel trapped and ashamed.
And now, Emily is producing ¨Slut: A Documentary Film.¨ This film will tell the stories of girls who took their own lives because of sexual bullying, and feature the opinions of respected sexologists, psychologists, and media figures to explore how we can all work toward a world where the word "slut" doesn't even make sense as an insult.
Join us on this special broadcast date to learn more about Emily, her film, and how you can help bring its much needed messages to communities everywhere.
