About Below The Belt: Featured in Forbes
Following several women battling endometriosis, shedding light on a diagnosis that affects a significant population of women worldwide– yet still lacks awareness.
A captivating documentary that follows a diverse selection of women with endometriosis as they navigate their diagnosis within their individual circumstances and ages – including personal symptoms, impact on their relationships and navigating their everyday lives.
Through the lens of endometriosis, a disease that affects 1 in 9 women, the film shows how women are often dismissed, discounted & disbelieved. From societal taboos and gender bias to misinformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, the film reveals how millions are effectively silenced and how, by fighting back, they can improve healthcare for all women.
Executive produced by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rosario Dawson, Mae Whitman, and Corinne Foxx “Below the Belt” approaches endometriosis as a social justice issue.
“We deserve to be believed. We deserve to be understood. We deserve to be empowered to understand ourselves, our bodies and any medical treatments presented to us. We deserve better across the entire healthcare system. Below the Belt aims to revolutionize the status quo so that people with endometriosis get what we deserve – the right to live healthy, informed, fulfilling lives.” – Executive Producer, Rosario Dawson
