Summary, etc.:
"Feminism. Does the word have any meaning today? Has it become tainted with connotations that alienate some women. Or is it simply irrelevant in the 21st century? Today in North America, women make up half the work force and more than half of all university students. But according to the UN, they own only 1% of the world's wealth despite comprising 53% of the population. And in Canada they're badly outnumbered on corporate boards and in Parliament. Even so, young women often shun the f-word identity. In this timely doc, the story of feminism and its continuing uphill battle is told through interviews with some of the best-known feminist icons -- and also younger voices who are finding new ways to advance the cause."--Container.
