Fantastic Documentation
21 June 2013 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentation about how women are seen in society. I know it's unfair to judge any media or source based on it itself, but from watching numerous documentation of the same subject I would consider this to be one of if not the best documentation about women in society. It addresses female stereotypes in society, which is so overlooked today. I am shocked that this documentation only has a rating of 6.9 when I came to IMDb. To be honest (and not trying to be rude, I know not everyone is the same or have the same ideas) but I assume most people that gave this film a good rating were female, and the men probably rated it quite low.

What is more disturbing than others (mostly men) speaking out against women who don't look a certain way are the silenced thoughts created from the portrayal of the media to every single person in society.

I strongly recommend this documentation.
