This campaign will help offset the cost of producing our documentary
"W'at Abowt Us" takes a look at the #MeToo movement. Women from diverse cultural backgrounds share their stories of shame and healing.

My name is Shelley Jarrett. I am the Founder and Publisher of SMJ Magazine and also the Creator and Producer of the documentary "W'AT ABOWT US." 

The #Me Too movement has sprung up and gained considerable momentum in the past year, but has focused on primarily white women as victims in the arts & entertainment industry and the media profession. At the same time, there is a sizable increase in demand on Canada's sexual violence support services. There has been an increase of 100% calls to the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre. In some parts of Canada there are limited or no services at all. The lack of support leaves survivors with few options of how  to deal with the trauma. 

This film features diverse women sharing their #Me Too experiences in diverse settings and environments.  The goal of this documentary is to bring awareness to the scope of this issue, to educate and to start the journey towards healing.

You can donate any amount towards the "W'AT ABOWT US"project starting at $5. You will be supporting the process of providing safe spaces to start the conversation and effect change on this issue.
