WEWoman: Help The Grandmothers’ Stories Be Told

About a month ago, I wrote a post about Within Every Woman (WEWoman), a documentary film project that explores the forgotten history of  “Comfort Women” (also know as “The Grandmothers”).

Filmmakers Tiffany Hsiung and others have  traveled through rural China, the Philippines, and South Korea to meet and document the survivors of what is known as the largest institutionalized rape system in world history. Beyond film production, WEWoman aims to build a movement to bring voices to survivors of sexual violence and connect the audience with a global community of storytellers, educators, and online resources.

WEWoman is very close to raising its $50,000 goal, but if it doesn’t meet this goal by THURSDAY, the project will not be funded. They only need about $2,000 more, so please visit the Kickstarter site here and pledge what you can (and be rewarded with recipes shared by the Grandmothers!) —  it would be a shame for the stories of the Grandmothers to go untold.

Thanks Kevin!
