Storyline

This film is a satire of the women's liberation movement, staring a trio of female impersonators. Candy is an aloof heiress caught in an unhappy relationship with her brother. Jackie is a virginal intellectual who believes women are oppressed in contemporary American society. And Holly is a nymphomaniac who has come to loathe men, despite her attraction to them. Together, they join a militant feminist group, P.I.G. (Politically Involved Girls), but their newfound liberation doesn't make them any happier. Written by Anonymous

Morrissey's most political movie ever.
20 October 2000 | by (Edmonton, Ab.) – See all my reviews

Women in Revolt is Morrissey's most Political Movie to date, It takes a satirical look at women's liberation which was gaining mass attention at the time this movie was made. The movie shows three Women who revolt against various oppressions. Joining forces they create a political group called P.I.G.S. an acronym standing for Politically Involved Girls. There are some interesting Parallels between the Movie and the shooting Andy Warhol experienced at the hands of Valerie Solanas in '68, She was a fierce Feminist, creating a manifesto called S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) and one can see the apparent mocking of the whole women's lib. movement with Casting three Transvestites/drag queens to play the Lead women. If this was intentional is unknown to me, but there must have Anti-feminist atmosphere at the factory after Valerie. The movie dosen't really touch up on Political issues for too long, and like any Movie from the factory is always filled with interesting character's, Like Mr. Morrissey says himself it's the character's that made the films. Some of the more memorable moments are Jackie Curtis having her boyfriend do her nails spraying him with air freshener, and then throwing matches at him to speed up his housework, having him totally naked with his flabby body exposed adds to his further degradation.
