The Greater Good

12.05.11 The Great Good Movie with Producer/Writer Leslie Manookian. THE GREATER GOOD looks behind the fear, hype and politics that have polarized the vaccine debate in America today. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.

“A new documentary about childhood immunizations, The Greater Good could intensify debate around the potential dangers of vaccines.” – The Wall Street Journal

“Deftly examined…provocative…film is an effective eye opener” – LA Times

“What’s being said is staggering, especially if you don’t know too much about the science of and politics behind vaccines.” – LA Weekly

“’The Greater Good’ is a fascinating exploration of how vaccines are produced and regulated.” – Pegasus News

“The Greater Good seeks to heat things up, but not to the boiling point.” – Dallas Film Festival

I started the Inconvenient Woman Blog in 2007, and am the product of a long line of inconvenient women. The matriarchal line is French-Canadian, Roman Catholic, with a very feisty Irish great-grandmother thrown in for sheer bloody mindedness. I am a research analyst and author who has made her living studying technical data, and developing articles, training materials, books and web content. Tracking through statistical data, and oblique cross-references to find the relevant connections that identifies a problem, or explains a path of action, is my passion. I love clearly delineating the magic questions of knowledge: Who, What, Why, When, Where and for How Much, Paid to Whom. My life lessons: listen carefully, question with boldness, and personally verify the answers. I look at America through the appreciative eyes of an immigrant, and an amateur historian; the popular and political culture is a ceaseless fascination. I have no impressive initials after my name. I’m merely an observer and a chronicler, an inconvenient woman who asks questions, and sometimes encourages others to look at things differently.
