As part the 40th anniversary celebrations of the Centre for Culture and the Creative Industries at City, University of London please join us for a screening of She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry, followed by a Q&A discussion on feminist activism past and present with our intergenerational panel.
She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. She’s Beautiful takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.
Sue O’Sullivan has been a member of the London Women’s Liberation Workshop, Spare Rib magazine collective, Feminist Review Collective, Red Rag and Sheba Feminist Press. She was interviewed by the British Library about her involvement in second wave feminism.
Jessica Ringrose is Professor, UCL Institute of Education, and Chair of the Gender and Education Association. Her books include Post-Feminist Education?: Girls and the sexual politics of schooling (Routledge, 2013) and Children, Sexuality, and Sexualisation (Palgrave, 2015).
