Fabulous
13 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most powerful documentary films I have ever seen. For those who have sisters, daughters, mothers who competed in sports, this is a must see. I read about this film in The New York Times and then after seeing it, sent copies of all of my friends. The film profiles Olympian Chris Ernst, who led a demonstration at Yale University in the mid-1970s when the women's rowing team was not given lockers rooms and women were generally given short shrift as athletes. 19 members of Yale's rowing team stripped in the athletic director's office, their bodies marked with the phrase "Title IX." The film is poignant, yet infused with very funny moments. It follows Chris from high school (where she began life as a rabble rouser) to Yale to the Olympics and to her chosen career as a plumber (with a Yale degree). Just wonderful.
