This Monday on KPFA Radio's Women's Magazine we will be offering the inspiring new feature documentary SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY as a premium. This moving film 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’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY captures the spirit of the time --- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.
A story that still resonates today for women who are facing new challenges around reproductive rights and sexual violence, as the film shows present-day activists creating their generation's own version of feminism. Described by the Village Voice as one of the best films of the year, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY is a film about activists who have changed the world as we know it.
