I’m thrilled to report that my documentary on the men of “Friends of Rape Relief”
is now online and ready to view! Just click above to watch “Men At Work: FIghting Sexism”.
I created this film to promote the work of Friends of Rape Relief
, a group of (mostly) men which organizes fundraising events like monthly street fundraisers and an annual Walk for Rape Relief in Stanley Park. I’ve been a member of FRR for over 10 years, and I wanted to create a short and interesting film that would communicate why men do this work, and hopefully encourage others to join.
Most men probably know someone in their life – a relative, a friend, a co-worker – who has been the target of male violence. Each year in this country, too many women are abused, physically assaulted, raped and murdered. As a member of Friends of Rape Relief, you’ll meet interesting, progressive people, engage in some lively discussions, and most importantly, make a real difference in women’s lives.

About the film
This film is the culmination of over two years, off and on, of interviewing, editing, expanding and refining. Produced in collaboration with Vancouver Rape Relief’s collective, it gives a good summary of what it looks like when men decide to support feminists. And there is even a special musical moment or two from yours truly!
