A Time of Revolution
25 July 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

That's some revolution, that sexual revolution. In this episode we review the ascent of various previously oppressed groups. We get to see how the women of America began to flex their muscles and demand what is rightfully theirs. We get to meet Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem and Helen Gurly Brown and their impact on the world. The confrontation with men over such things as having a right to their own bodies. Of course, the Civil Rights movement is in full blossom but it doesn't happen without protest and risk. Of course, the main event continues to be Vietnam and all its implications. Nixon is re- elected but lying in the weeds is an investigation into some dirty tricks. We also see the ineffective Hubert Humphrey trying to move ahead. Good work.
