Powerful depiction of the 60's Women's right movement
An entertaining, as well as informative film. Seeing the issue through the eyes of the women who were part of the genesis, as well as in the forefront of the movement was emotionally evocative.
A great film for anyone who lived through this era, regardless of your gender or political leanings.
It describes the hardships, and hurdles that women had to endure to acquire some semblance of equality. At the same time, informing us that there is still much to do, as women's rights are being eroded in our current political climate.
The era was brought to life via film clips of marches and speeches form the 60's, supporting the interviews.
As a kicker, the musical score was excellent.
