In 1977, a book of photographs captured an awakening - women shedding the cultural restrictions of their childhoods and embracing their full humanity. Feminists: What Were They Thinking? revisits those photos, those women and those times - and takes aim at our current culture revealing all too vividly the urgent need for continued change. The film offers candid and riveting interviews with women such as Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, Lily Tomlin and Judy Chicago tackling topics ranging from identity, abortion, race, childhood and motherhood.Written by
This film requires no direction and no script. Women tell the stories that happened to them as they were growing up and what is happening currently. This is a documentary about women by women and it is what is it. There is no contradicting what happened to these people and the stories speak for themselves. Women are not yet equal in society and it used to be even worse. Despite the progress the fight needs to continue because of the attitudes towards women expressed in the film and the very reviews from this website.
This happened! This is happening! Women have not been able to vote for 100 years!
