(20 minutes) US
[watch trailer]

SATURDAY 10/29, 1:00 PM (Session 19)

Director/Producer:
Kristine Stolakis

Description:
The story of a controversial group of Mormon feminists fighting for women's rights in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Where We Stand follows Abby Hansen, a stay-at-home mom turned vocal advocate for Ordain Women as she navigates the repercussions of her unpopular activism against her church in her predominantly Mormon suburb. Where We Stand is also the coming of age story of Ordain Women as an organization itself—from a humble website to an internationally recognized activist group. The film is not just for Mormons. It is not just for feminists. It is for anyone who has questioned what it means to believe and to belong.
