About Woman Vision

Dee MosbacherIn 1993, Dr. Dee Mosbacher, motivated by the gay-bashing and anti-woman focus of the 1992 Republican National Convention,* founded Woman Vision to counteract the right's extremely well-funded and misleading anti-gay media campaigns. Dr. Mosbacher, a practicing psychiatrist in San Francisco, understands the suffering caused by homophobia from a psychological and psychosocial point of view. Her vision as a filmmaker comes from her consciousness as a psychiatrist. She believes that showing transformation—by modeling people who take on difficult issues and change—is the most powerful educational tool you can provide.
