Doctors, Liars and Women: AIDS Activists Say No To Cosmo

1988, 23:00 minutes, colour, English


An exciting and empowering tape documenting women AIDS activists as they confront the doctor and editors responsible for the printing of a misleading/deadly Cosmopolitan article about women and HIV transmission. The "Cosmo" tape sets the record straight dispelling many of our myths and misconceptions about HIV and AIDS. Looking at issues of class, race and gender, this work takes AIDS into the political realm revealing the neglect by the medical establishment.
