Show Notes:

The F Word speaks with three women from Women Against Violence Against Women (WAVAW) Rape Crisis Centre about their review of David Cronenberg's highly acclaimed new film, A Dangerous Method. What messages is the film sending to women and men about sexuality? How are masochism, repressed sexuality, rape myths, oppression, and movies interconnected? These outspoken feminists share their knowledge about women's experiences and their ideas around what Cronenberg could have done if he'd wanted to create a truly groundbreaking film. Too often we imagine films to exist in a world separate from ours. This conversation draws connections between the big screen and our everyday lives.
