SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971.
Taking us from the founding of NOW — with ladies in hats and gloves — to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality and in the process created a world-wide revolution. Instead of romanticizing the early movement, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL dramatizes its exhilarating, quarrelsome, sometimes heart-wrenching glory. Still resonating today for women who are facing new challenges around reproductive rights and sexual violence, the film shows present-day activists creating their generation’s own version of feminism and inspires women and men to work for feminism and human rights. Unrated / 92 mins.
