Resurrecting Women’s Lib thru Mary Dore’s documentary on Women’s History Month

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry

A PROVOCATIVE AND INSIGHTFUL ACCOUNT OF THE BIRTH OF THE MODERN
WOMEN’S LIBERATION MOVEMENT

 

SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY is an insightful, rousing and often humorous account of the birth and rise of the women’s liberation movement in the late 1960s through to its contemporary manifestations in the new millennium.

Directed by Mary Dore, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY combines rarely-seen archival footage, a classic soundtrack of the era and the first-person stories of the protests, poetry slams and community meetings that engineered the women’s liberation movement and the meaningful social change it sought. Embracing the grassroots movement that proclaimed “the personal is political” and the women who dared to get furious about it, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY is not only a tribute to past bravery and determination, but also a warning and urgent rallying cry to the next wave of those determined to ensure equal rights for all.
