Grassroots change starts at the community level and while the film focuses on Dallas, Texas area, the message is universal. The use of archival footage including suffragettes, Anita Hill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lady Bird Johnson, JFK and more helps support the modern day voices of women and men as the film weaves together a story of the ongoing fight for gender equality dating back 100+ years. Inspired by the national reckoning that occurred for women in the Fall of 2017, Shatter the Silence highlights prominent ministers, politicians, teachers, students, social workers and more as they discuss the #metoo movement, rape culture, the role of the church and initiatives taking place within the community and State to bring-forth change.
