Feminist: Stories from Women's Liberation

This is the story of the women's liberation movement from 1963-1970. In 2004 a woman whispered to me 'Are you a feminist?' She was embarrassed to ask me. I tried explaining to her that it was good to be a feminist, but I lacked a detailed visual history. I had no 'snapshots' in my mind from which to grab. I decided to interview many of the feminists who made that revolution happen. I made it as a woman would, I traveled around the country and talked to the feminists from that time. I connect these stories with my story as a feminist and a mother of a small girl who wants her to know the history of the women's movement.

64 min., Unrated.

Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their idealistic pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve. Shakespeare's sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, and mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship. Shakespeare's comic romance plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins out.
