Be angry, be beautiful

8 Jun

Mary Dore and Nancy Kennedy are currently editing their new documentary “She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry“, about the birth of the women’s liberation movement, from 1966 to 1972; and, consequently, a film on how popular movements can force the enactment of social change. A thrilling and funny film, it looks at the dignified ladies with hats and gloves who helped form NOW, the cool-headed intellectuals (Cynthia Ozick’s famous put-down of Norman Mailer’s writing technique with spherical objects comes fondly to mind), the street-taking radicals (hello, “WITCH/Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!”), and everyone in between. Read more about the film here, and if you’re interested in participating/supporting the project, click here. (cross-posted from
