Wonder women! : the untold story of American superheroines( Visual )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A nuanced critique of gender and heroism in popular culture as well as a powerful dose of Vitamin F(eminism) for the undernourished. From the birth of the 1940s comic book heroine, Wonder Woman, to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about strong and healthy women. Wonder Women! reveals the complicated negotiations girls and women face as they attempt to achieve confidence, strength, and agency in a society often at odds with those goals. Yet it also inspires through its evocative images, upbeat soundtrack, and richly contextualized history of American superheroines -- including the everyday wonder women and action girls in our midst. The film goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna, and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre

Going on 13 : a chronicle of pre-teen girls coming of age( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary portrays a reality far more complex than viewers are used to seeing in the media concerning pre-teen girls and urban girls of color. Without simplifying or sensationalizing their lives, the film shows the four featured girls as multi-faceted and gripping individuals. Using a mix of intimate interviews, cinema vérité, and stop-motion animation, Going On 13 chronicles the girls' coming of age. The girls talk about themselves. They take viewers into their world, with the music, television, digital media, and books they adoringly ingest (and that rarely reflect their own families' economic or cultural backgrounds), providing texture, context, and contrast for the social and emotional challenges they face.

La caminata = The journey by Rosario García Crespo( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fed up with the mass migration of their community, the small Mexican town of Alberto creates a one-of-a-kind tourist attraction they call La Caminata, a simulated nighttime border crossing, complete with fake border patrol chasing balaclava-clad coyotes. The experience is a cross between adventure tourism and a way for participants, largely middle class Mexican tourists, to experience firsthand the hardships of the border crossing. La Caminata details the story of this unlikely attempt to save a small community, offering a powerful look at the effect of migration in home communities, and opening a view to the immigration debate on the other side
