Award-winning filmmaker and author Emily Lindin, creator of the Unslut Project , is coming to UK! Join Emily in person as she screens Unslut: A Documentary Film that asks the question: "Why is the sexual shaming of girls and women, especially sexual assault victims, still so prevalent?" Through interviews with sexuality experts, advocates, and media figures, Emily explores sexual shaming, bullying, and discrimination.
