Sex(Ed): The Movie

KU Memorial Union, The Jay

Co-sponsored by the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity 


Please join KU's feminist student organization and the Emily Taylor Center in kicking off the academic year with a screening and discussion of Sex(Ed): The Movie.


Come learn more about getting involved in intersectional trans-inclusive feminist activism on campus with SURGE and ETC!



Sex(Ed): The Movie offers a revealing, hilarious, and occasionally awkward look at how Americans have learned about sex from the early 1900s to the present. This work of critical film analysis shows that what we learn (and how we learn it) affects our identity, our relationships, and our ability to be intimate. The messages imparted in sex ed lessons have a profound impact on how children later appreciate a woman's right to her body and her sexual activity, value consent and seek it out, understand the rights of oft-marginalized LGBTQ teens and adults, and connect with others as human, sexual being.
