Episode 185 feat Phyllis Ellis (Filmmaker & Olympian)
Today we are joined with Emmy nominated filmmaker and Canadian Olympian Phyllis Ellis. Her latest documentary Category: Woman sheds some light on some horrifying crimes against humanity that are currently happening to women athletes around the world. From wrongful gender testing, insane surgical procedures based on false science, and straight up sexism/racism by athletic commissions towards women who naturally produce high levels testosterone. A lot of things that are showcased in this documentary would make you think this is something that took place in the 50's or 60's but all of this is happening today. This film and chat was an eye opening experience and we only hope that it gets the proper reach to gain awareness and cause some needed change.
