(In) Visible Women shows the heroic responses of three women with AIDS in the context of their respective communities. In the face of adversity, these women confront all aspects of the AIDS crisis in their lives. Through poetry, art, activism, and dance, they explode notions of female invisibility and complacency in the face of AIDS. We hear each woman describe how she came to terms with being HIV+ and joined others in speaking out about the neglected needs of women.

(In) Visible Women is the second video in the Fear of Disclosure Project, initiated by the late Phil Zwickler and produced by Phil Zwickler and Jonathan Lee.

Spanish subtitled version available.
