(Note from Liss: Any thoughtful content about the rape culture produced by smart and decent people like dream hampton is crucial. And it is sometimes impossible for survivors to watch. It's okay if you can't watch it. You don't need to watch it to support survivors and their advocates. You can read and share reviews like this one, or amplify the voices of the survivors who participated and/or of the people who helped tell their stories.)
