“That defiant sisterhood changed the workplace, our sexual politics, our language.” – Alan Scherstuhl

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. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).  Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.

She Speaks First is Speakeasy Cinema’s female-focused film series. We screen films made by women followed by conversations focusing on the space women occupy in cinema; her gaze, her voice, and her story.

Co-Producer and assistant editor Catherine Dwyer and producer Sue Maslin (Road To Nhill, Japanese StoryThe Dressmaker) will join us in conversation after the film for the She Speaks First session on Sun 15 Nov.


“Whatever mistakes have been made along the path and however the movement has been stereotyped, the essential project of feminism has always been the project of human freedom.”

–Andrew O'Hehir
