Can’t get no satisfaction? Writer-director Barbara Miller’s documentary explores the societal, cultural, religious and legal restrictions on female sexuality across the globe.

“[An] illuminating if one-sided overview of the myriad ways in which women’s sexuality is controlled and subjugated.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
“The issues they confront are not new, yet the stories of their radicalization are engaging, and Miller’s deft editing and objective approach result in a surprisingly intimate and life-affirming film.” — Maria Garcia, Los Angeles Times
“An empowering statement for women, no matter their cultural or religious background, to reclaim their bodies and celebrate their sexuality without shame or suffering.” — Candica Frederick, TheWrap
