The missing conversation about ending violence

- a film by ellen snortland -

the issue

The issue of ending violence against women and girls is a complicated one. The purpose of the movie,
Beauty Bites Beast, is to provide tools to females to be part of the solution WHILE an assault is taking place rather
than raising her to expect rescue from someone else. Empowerment self-defense advocates, both women and
men, have been systematically excluded from private and public conversations. The foundational ideas of
Beauty Bites Beast are based in the determination to have empowerment self-defense advocates included
at the “solve violence against women and girls” discussion tables around the world.

what they’re saying

Female elephants, lions - all are just as fierce in self-defense as males. Only our species is taught to be ‘feminine’ and defenseless. ‘Beauty Bites Beast’ shows how women around the world are taking back our strengths and lives.
