She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry

You guys, if you only watch one movie from this list, make it this one. I cried. I laughed. I found myself clapping and cheering along with the women featured. This documentary is the first I have seen where all the different sectors of the movement are covered. Meaning, it doesn’t just feature white, straight women.  Women of different classes, women of color, women of varied sexual orientations–it’s all here. Do yourself a favor and watch this one. Watch it twice.
