EP. 188 — Confronting Medical Assault with A’magine Goddard

This week, Jameela is joined by director, producer and sexual educator A’magine Goddard to discuss her award-winning new documentary ‘At Your Cervix’ that breaks the silence about the continuous violation of bodily autonomy for educational purposes. Jameela and A’magine discuss the history of gynecology and obstetrics, why non-consensual pelvic exams on patients under anesthesia must end along with the many gynecological teaching alternatives, and plenty more. A warning before listening, this episode discusses medical trauma and sexual assault.

Jameela Intro [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, podcast against shame. I hope you’re well and thank you so much for so many lovely messages about my deeply candid and personal episode of Ask Me Anything. I really did answer everything with as much personal truth as possible, and I appreciate how responsive you’ve all been. So give that a listen if you want to just have a sort of one on one chat with me in the car, maybe. But generally, you’ve just been such a dream and I’m so happy that you’re also happy with the episodes. This week is a very, very intense subject, but one of the most important subjects I feel like I’ve ever learned about. Not just during the time of making this podcast for almost four years. Wow. But ever. I had no idea that this thing was happening in the United States, and it has possibly changed the rest of my life to learn about it now. I was told to watch a film a few months ago call
