Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella has never cared about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarries and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward doesn't seem like any boy she’s ever met before. He’s intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance–unorthodox because Edward really isn’t like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn’t aged since 1918.

Our words have a tremendous impact on others, even when we are unaware of it.  This film explores the many ways women’s lives are impacted by microaggressions based on stereotypes and assumptions.
