Reproductive Justice 2019: Perils and Prospects

The personal is the political has been a part of the American vocabulary since at least the 1960s. Initially this argument was a source of identity and politics-making in the male public arena, not the female domestic space. Recently, this personal has been targeted in both Western Europe and North America where varying nationalist resurgences have resulted in anti-choice legislation. In response, some American states have passed reproductive-specific protections through legislative acts of their own. Against the backdrop of culture war, what does this renewed attention to female agency and their bodies say about our broken, polarized present? What prospects lay ahead for women? And more importantly, what perils?

100 years after its creation, the power of the Federal Reserve has never been greater. Markets around the world hold their breath in anticipation of the Fed Chairman’s every word. Yet the average American knows very little about the most powerful financial institution on earth.

Narrated by acclaimed actor Liev Schreiber, Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve is the first film to take viewers inside America’s central bank and reveal the impact of Fed policies – past, present, and future – on our lives. As Ben Bernanke steps down, join incoming Fed Chair Janet Yellen, former Fed Chair Paul Volcker, and many of the world’s best financial minds as they debate the decisions that led the global economy to the brink of collapse and ask whether me might be headed there again.
