A provocative, rousing and often humorous account of the birth of the modern women’s liberation movement in the late 1960s through to its contemporary manifestations in the new millennium, direct from the women who lived it.
Mary Dore’s masterful documentary combines historical footage from the 60s with present-day interviews to form a thrilling portrait of second-wave feminism and its grassroots impact. By taking sight at the movement’s origins, the film provides a poignant roadmap for human rights organizing today.
