Audience Reviews for She's Beautiful When She's Angry

  • Dec 23, 2014
    "She's Beautiful When She's Angry" is a spirited and informative documentary about what has come to be termed second wave femimism from 1966 to 1971. As inspired as these feminists were by "The Feminine Mystique" by Betty Friedan, this rapidly evolving movement eventually passed her by, as younger women from all walks of life and other political movements joined the struggle for women's rights. Overall, the documentary makes great use of archival footage to remind us of the horrible sexist attitudes of the past, along with a reminder of the lack of reproductive rights before Roe v. Wade, in order to show how far women have come in this country since then. Much more importantly, we get to hear from the members of this second wave feminist movement, including famed writer Rita Mae Brown, then and now, who as one participant puts it, came together 'with only mimeographs and stamps.' So while, yes, bras were burned, so also were university degrees. But as much as this documentary proves a valuable reminder and inspiration for the current generation of feminists, it also shows that the fight goes on.
