Positive Women: Exposing Injustice

Positive Women: Exposing Injustice is a new documentary that takes the audience into the hearts and minds of four positive women bravely speaking out about HIV and criminalization. What happens if a woman does not disclose her HIV-positive status to a sexual partner? How does criminalization impact HIV-positive women in Canada?  How do women feel about their experience with the criminal law with respect to HIV non-disclosure? These are important questions in light of the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision about the non-disclosure of HIV between sex partners.

The 45 minute film will be followed by a discussion of the issues. We encourage positive women, health and social service providers, students in health and social service disciplines, and community allies to attend. This event is FREE.

When: November 27, @ 4 PM

Where: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver.  Room 1425 (Repap Policy Room)

Thanks to AIDS Awareness Network of SFU, the Simon Fraser Public Interest Research Group, and Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network for their partnership and support.
