      Nothing Without Us screening & PrEP discussion

      Brigstowe is presenting a screening of Harriet Hirshorn’s 2017 documentary Nothing Without Us: The Women Who Will End AIDS, followed by a panel and open discussion.Nothing Without Us tells the inspiring story of the vital role that women have played – and continue to play – in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. Combining archival footage and interviews with female activists, scientists and scholars in the US and Africa, Nothing Without Us reveals how women not only shaped grassroots groups like ACT-UP in the U.S., but have also played an essential part in HIV prevention and treatment access throughout sub-Saharan Africa. From beauty parlours in Baton Rouge to the first HIV Clinic in Burundi, this film looks boldly at the unaddressed dynamics that keep women around the world at high-risk for HIV, while introducing the remarkable women who have the answers to ending this 30-year old pandemic. As the history of AIDS activism is being written, women, particularly women of colour, are being written out of it. This documentary will be a step in restoring women’s crucial role in the history and present-day activism around HIV as well as bolstering the work of women everywhere still fighting for their lives. After the event there will be a panel conisting of sexual health experts and commuity activitst discussing the importance of PrEP and how to access it (PrEP is a pill taken to prevent contracting HIV - it is currently available on  the NHS as part of the Impact Trial).
