  • An amazing documentary about the history of the movement for women's rights

    teteu2016-07-24

    This amazing documentary about the women's fight for their independence and for the reproductive rights it is a great learning about the history of feminism movement and of his implications in the current society. Using statements, videos and photos, the doc. shows to his public how have emerged the feminists organizations in the patriarchal society from 1960's. Essential questions, even in the current days, are presented in the historical and social context with seriousness and emotion by the documentary, starting from the most important point of view, of the women who fought for their rights in a time when do not there was any right for this group. Images of speeches and memorable protests builds a scenario of the reality lived for the women in the 60's decade and the courage, brilliance and intelligence of the first feminist group in the USA. Exploring the differences between the many kinds of movements existing in a fight so multiple, the Mary Dore's job explores the fundamental flags of the feminism, like the body rights, the abortion question, the financial equality and equal opportunities, the black feminism and the women's history. All of this presented dynamically, without become tiresome. The documentary brings a hope from a world more egalitarian and more free for the personal decisions, mainly for the women, in a decade where their rights are threatened around the world.

  • Feature length documentary of the radical feminist movement in US from the early 1960's to the mid-1970's

    piedaterre2014-07-16

    This film is not only a comprehensive history of a powerful and multifaceted movement in the not-too-distant past, it is a call to action. For young people, in particular, who came of age in times when job postings are no longer segregated by gender, when woman-centric health information and health services are (slightly) more accessible, when women with careers were not (always) denounced, this film offers a peek at what life was like for women before the mid-1960's and helps us understand the origins of the concept of gender equality that many of us take for granted. We are also reminded that much of what was won decades ago is once again in jeopardy. There are clips from mass marches, meetings, poetry readings, and consciousness-raising sessions. The filmmakers interviewed many women who became the face of feminism and these women's reflections upon how the movement developed, what issues and what actions galvanized the activism of the time, are passionate, often profound, and sometimes very funny. The film does not shy away from the reality that the feminist movement was complicated and messy. The internal political divisions, the divisions of geography, race and class, and the almost casual homophobia, are all exposed and examined. The film is ultimately a celebration of the diversity, creativity, intelligence, and fortitude of these early feminists who continue to inspire us to take up struggle for women's rights in the Twenty-First Century.

  • Powerful depiction of the 60's Women's right movement

    sfeldheim2014-07-16

    An entertaining, as well as informative film. Seeing the issue through the eyes of the women who were part of the genesis, as well as in the forefront of the movement was emotionally evocative. A great film for anyone who lived through this era, regardless of your gender or political leanings. It describes the hardships, and hurdles that women had to endure to acquire some semblance of equality. At the same time, informing us that there is still much to do, as women's rights are being eroded in our current political climate. The era was brought to life via film clips of marches and speeches form the 60's, supporting the interviews. As a kicker, the musical score was excellent.

  • See this film before you say, "I'm not a feminist, but . . ."

    She's Beautiful When She's Angry (2014) was directed by Mary Dore. This is an important documentary movie, because it concerns itself with the feminist movement in the U.S. in the late 1960's and into the 1970's. I lived through this period, so I was familiar with much of the material portrayed. However, today, 40 years later, many people may not realize that what we take for granted had to be fought for meeting by meeting, petition by petition, publication by publication, and demonstration by demonstration. This is an important lesson, especially for people who take what the feminists accomplished for granted. The film has several premises, and I agree with all of them. One is that women's rights were won by struggle, not given. Another is that you never "win" the battle for any civil rights, including rights for women. Everything you win can be taken away or pushed back, so the struggle has to continue today and, sadly, always. Another important historical point is that feminists didn't speak with one unified voice. As within any movement, there were disagreements and hostilities. Many of the women who had high profiles in the feminist movement were White and relatively privileged. What about poor women? What about women of color? Women of color had to fight two battles--to be recognized as equal to men, and recognized as equal to White women. Even in the discussion after the movie, some people felt that the comments made by other people denigrated their own work. It's hard to achieve your goals, and to keep a movement unified, or at least not totally fragmented. It was interesting to hear interviews with high-profile feminists like Susan Brownmiller and Kate Millett, but the interviews with lesser-known feminists were fascinating as well. The documentary footage was well chosen and illustrated the topics discussed by the women being interviewed. Production quality was high. This movie is worth seeing, and I recommend it. We saw it on the large screen at the excellent Little Theatre in Rochester, NY. However, it will work very well on DVD.

  • A documentary about the women's movement in the 60's.

    This is a wonderful, exciting new film about the women's movement in the sixties. This film brought back the fight for women's equality through important historic film clips and interviews and music. Much of these events took place more than 50 years ago and the film shows many of the women then and now. The current interviews and takes on the movement are as compelling as the originals. This is a film that should not be missed, especially if you missed it (the movement) the first time around. The film focuses mainly on how this grass roots movement started by small groups of women and quickly spread throughout the country and to all ages and social groups. There was a section on how "our Bodies, Our Selves" came about.
