"Bossy" does not describe Jill Conway in any way, shape or form, 16 April 2007
Author: kittencat3-1 from United States

Unlike the person who described Jill Ker Conway as "a bossy feminist" who headed an "ivy league women's college," I actually know Jill Conway. She's soft-spoken, polite, and as far from bossy as it's possible to get. This description of her is nothing more than gender stereotyping because she's a woman who has held leadership positions, one of them at a single-sex college, and does her a great disservice.

As for the movie, it was beautifully done, and did a wonderful job of translating Conway's first memoir to the screen. The actress playing actually looked a fair bit like her, which is more than can be said for most biographical films, and did a good job capturing the essence of a girl who's being destroyed from within by a domineering mother and an intellectually barren environment. Great adaptation of a great book.

******* Oh yes. Smith College is not and never has "an ivy league women's college." The Ivy League is all male. Smith is part of the Seven Sisters. Thank you.
