‘Women’s Pain Is Less Important’: Documentary ‘Below the Belt’ Shows Why Endometriosis Is a Feminist Issue

A new documentary Below the Belt, executive produced by Hillary Clinton and directed by Shannon Cohn, demonstrates why endometriosis—and women’s health—is an urgent social justice issue for feminists.

The film follows the lives of four women living with endometriosis—a disease that can cause debilitating pain, infertility and menstrual issues.
