She's Beautiful When She's Angry

The roots of the women’s movement, or second wave feminism, may seem like a time left for the history books-women fighting to get equal footing in the workforce and striking back against the forces that aimed to keep them as second class citizens to their male peers. But some of the issues of that movement are still being fought almost five decades later-equal pay, more seats in boardroom and the fight for reproductive rights. The documentary She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry talks to the women at the forefront, founders of the National Organization of Women and some of the radical forces who took to the streets. The film is having another run at Gene Siskel Film Center. We talk to the director Mary Dore about her goal is sharing this story now, and what connections she sees to that time and now.
