Summary This documentary features raw, powerful interviews with 18 diverse cisgender and transgender women about their sexual & reproductive health histories. Women from a variety of racial and ethnic, age, sexual orientation, and class backgrounds candidly recount their histories with sexual education, early sexual experiences, abortion, birth control, masturbation, relationships, gender transition, menstruation, STIs, gynecological exams, sexual assault, pregnancy, pleasure, and much more. Challenging social taboo with unflinching candor, vulnerability, and often great humor, BREAK THE SILENCE catalyzes vitally important conversations around sexual education, health, autonomy, pleasure, and human rights
