The Woman's Film (Newsreel #55)

EDUCATIONAL VIDEO-ON-DEMAND STREAMING NOW AVAILABLE: twn.tugg.com/titles/the-womans-film

Produced collectively by women, this documentary is a valuable historical document of the origins of the modern women's movement in the United States. The film delves into the lives of ordinary women from different races, educational levels and class Filmed mostly in small consciousness-raising groups, from which the women's movement grew, the women talk about the daily realities of their lives as wives, home-makers, and workers. They speak, sometimes with hesitancy, often with passion, about the oppression of women as they see it.

Thanks to the generous contribution of The Women’s Film Preservation Fund of New York Women in Film & Television (womensfilmpreservationfund.org), THE WOMAN'S FILM has been preserved and is available for educational purchases and public screenings.

Reviews
"San Francisco Newsreel's film THE WOMAN'S FILM represented the perspective of a range of working-class women on how their everyday experience gave rise to an awareness of oppression. THE WOMAN'S FILM, made primarily by women members of the group, stood out as one of the first feminist documentaries of the postwar era. Its series of interviews coupled with scenes of each participant's everyday life confirmed women as filmmakers and as political activists as well as the proper subjects of documentary representations."
- Bill Nichols, Introduction to Documentary
