“Feminism seems to be the scariest word in the English language. But not for those of us who experienced the game-changing awakening that was the Women’s Movement of the 1970s. Growing up in the fifties and sixties meant not only second class citizenship legally, but second class human being-ship: not invited to the party of medicine, art, law, education, science, religion, except maybe as the secretary.” Inspired by a book of photography profiling rising feminists called Emergence, the film, FEMINISTS: What were they thinking? digs deep into the personal experiences of women pivotal to the movement and follows this ever-challenging dialogue right into the 21s...t century.
Dir. Johanna Demetrakas, USA, 2018, 85 min.
