A feminist movie that's not "hur dur men are bad"
Firstly, as a disclaimer, I went into this knowing nothing about the woman on whom this is based or circumstances upon which this was based so without being in possession of historically accurate context I can only speak to the the movie itself.
I enjoyed it. Instead of contemporary feminism's "great vengeance and furious anger" towards men approach, this movie presented the plight of women as righting an unfair situation, set in a time when the lawmakers thought it incredulous to consider inequality even existed.
A refreshing and very welcome change of pace in the current climate. This movie didn't try to make me feel awful just for being born a particular gender.
