The Coat Hanger Project (2008) directed by MOTHERTONGUE ALUMNA Angie Young, is about abortion and the current state of the pro-choice and reproductive justice movements 35 years after Roe vs. Wade. Since the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973, anti-choice forces have been making it their mission to dismantle women's reproductive freedom. They came together, brilliantly strategized, pooled their resources, and slowly but steadily they have been implementing their attack. Their weapons: money, the legal system, the government, the media, the church, and - this is the scariest of all - you.
