Award-winning film about comprehensive sex education to screen in Honolulu

Tuesday, May 15, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., YWCA Laniakea, Room 307. Suggested donation $10.00.  The YWCA of O’ahu, in partnership with ACLU and Planned Parenthood of Hawaii, will show the film “Let’s Talk About Sex”
 
This event is co-sponsored by the Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women and Women’s Fund of Hawaii. Following the event, representatives from the ACLU, Planned Parenthood of Hawaii, YWCA and the Commission on the Status of Women will talk story on key issues that affect women’s health this past legislative session.
Let’s Talk About Sex takes a revealing look at how American attitudes towards adolescent sexuality affect today’s teenagers and also compares European attitudes with American. The film concludes in Oregon, where the lessons learned in Western Europe are helping to create practical solutions.

Within this film, real parents and youth, compelling statistics, animation and archival material, all combine to paint an urgent picture of American youth in crisis. A crisis that not a lot of people are talking about. Let’s Talk About Sex challenges the viewer to take on this often uncomfortable subject and help protect the future of our young people. For more information & to RSVP: http://www.ywca.org/site/pp.aspx?c=9fLGJSOyHpE&b=294827
