Three one hour long episodes describing the post WW2 feminist movement in the USA. Laws regulating birth, marriage, employment, security of the person (wife beating), and social customs and attitudes and media representations are all given their due in chronological order. Major publications are the focal points around which the story is told, mostly books (starts with Friedan's The Feminine Mystique), and later magazines (eg., Ms.). The doc is marred by the inclusion the high-functioning psychopath Ms. Clinton.
I like the honest account of the successes and failures of the women's movement, the lessons that made it stronger and that help us to understand the forces which push and pull our society. When progress seems slow, it helps to look back in astonishment at the assumptions and pronouncements that won public opinion 40 years ago. Attitudes have changed.
