Feminist : Stories from Women's Liberation( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, this documentary brings the momentous first decade of second wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movements full blossoming in 1970--from the Presidential Commissions report on widespread discrimination against women and publication of Betty Friedans Feminine Mystique up through radical feminists takeover of the Statue of Liberty and Friedan’s calls for a womens strike for equality. A wealth of period footage captures landmark events and the pivotal roles of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Redstockings, and other organizations. Thirty-five diverse interviewees, including rank-and-file activists along with well-known feminists Betty Friedan, Frances M. Beale, Gloria Steinem, Robin Morgan, Ti-Grace Atkinson, and others, share memories of the period as well as issues and challenges that still resonate today. A great introduction to Womens Studies and critical viewing for historians and academics interested in feminism, activism and the Womens Movement." -- Publisher’s description
