Positive Women: Exposing Injustice

What if You Knew You Could Go to Prison for Something You Couldn’t Change?

Positive Women: Exposing Injustice is a 45-minute documentary that takes the audience into the hearts and minds of four positive women bravely speaking out about HIV and criminalization.

What happens if a woman does not disclose her HIV-positive status to a sexual partner? How does criminalization impact HIV-positive women in Canada?  How do women feel about their experience with the criminal law with respect to HIV non-disclosure?

These are important questions in light of the October 5, 2012, Supreme Court of Canada decision about the non-disclosure of HIV between sex partners.

We encourage positive women, health and social service providers, students in health and social service disciplines, and community allies to  see it and use it for discussions.

We have one copy we can loan to local groups. You can also get a copy from the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network. 

The film is now available for viewing online as well.
