The screening will take place in Gira Center 397 on Tuesday, March 7, at 7 p.m. This event is and is free and open to the public."She's Beautiful When She's Angry" is a documentary that recounts the stories of the women who founded the feminist movement from 1966 to 1971. Topics of change are discussed, including employment equality, marriage rights equality, abortion rights, equal pay and aspects of Betty Friedan's book "The Feminine Mystique." The women of NOW, adorned in hats and gloves, are shown as well as the more radical groups, including W.I.T.C.H (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!). The documentary focuses on the lives of minority women, including African-American and LGBT women, and how those separate movements tied into second-wave feminism. The women in the film discuss how life was before the second feminist movement and how difficult the fight truly was. Directed and produced by award-winning documentary producer, Mary Dore, "She's Beautiful When She's Angry" is about activists and was made to inspire women and men to work for feminism and human rights.For more information, contact Women Studies Coordinator Dr. Julie Hartman-Linck at [email protected] or 301-687-3198.
