Have you ever

been through something

and you don't know

what just happened,

but you know it was

important to go through?

This is that journey for me.


ranting would be at home

in the far reaching

Internet subculture

widely described as

the men's rights movement...

A toxic distillation of the worst

aspects of American sexism.

It's a universe of message

boards where men get together

to express their hatred

towards women.

Well, I thought men

had all of the advantages

in the world these days?

That's utter nonsense.

Men are routinely ground up

in a family court system

that is misandrist

and biased against them.

They are the majority

of the homeless.

They are the majority

of suicides.

They are majority

of the drug addicted.

They are the majority

of the unemployed.

They are majority

of the school drop outs.

They are the majority

of those in prison...

How do we know that they're

not the cause of these problems?

There's a reason that women live

longer, mark, let me tell you.

It is because we are stronger

and we are happier at the end

of the day than most men,

and that is factual

and you know it.

And when men are married

to women who scream like you

they just want to die sooner.

- I'm not screaming.

- When you have...

A voice for men...

An online hub

for men's rights activists.

They were founded by a man

named Paul Elam.

It's a website

called a voice for men

that's run by a man

named Paul Elam...

Which is "male"

spelled backwards,

but it is his

real name apparently.

It's a gathering

of women haters.

This Southern poverty law center

has classified that group

and men's rights groups

as hate groups.

He wrote a piece

declaring the month of October

to be

"bash a violent b*tch" month.

"I mean, literally to grab

them by the hair,

and smack their face

against the wall," he wrote.

Here he is.

You may be wondering

why I'm sitting in a car

with notorious men's

rights activist Paul Elam.

That's a valid question.

And to answer it,

I need to start

at the beginning...

The beginning of how

I became a feminist.

I was a quiet kid, preferring

to observe from afar.

My mom put me in theater classes

when I was eight years old

to break me out of my shell,

and I loved it,

so much to the point

that I decided

to move to Hollywood

when I was 18 years old

to become an actress.

What I wasn't prepared for

was to be pigeonholed

as the blonde who always died.


Granted, I had a good scream.

But the characters I played

weren't alone

in feeling objectified.

I was commonly harassed

on the streets,

hit on by married producers,

told by photographers

to come back

when I lost 15 pounds

and got a boob job,

and a plethora of other

uncomfortable experiences,

all while still being

a teenager.

I started to realize

my role in the world

seemed a little too similar to the

unfortunate roles I was auditioning for,

and it was not how I saw myself

or the person

that I wanted to be.

So I quit acting

and bought a video camera

to tell the stories

I wanted to tell,

and now I've been making

documentary films since 2008

when I was 21 years old.

Most of my work has been about

women's issues and sexuality.

I've covered a range of topics

from the phenomenon

of purity balls,

to reproductive rights,

single motherhood,

and LGBT rights.

After releasing my film in 2012

about marriage equality,

I was at a loss of what topic

to explore next,

and that's when two horrific

stories broke the news.

Two star high school

football players

in Steubenville, Ohio,
