I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST by Therese Shechter
"The film's fresh approach is perfect for those who say, 'I'm not a feminist, but..."
- Alison Piepmeier
Co-editor of 'Catching a Wave: Reclaiming Feminism for the 21st Century'
Why is it that young, independent, progressive women in today's society feel uncomfortable identifying with the F-word? Join filmmaker Therese Shechter as she takes a funny, moving and very personal journey into the heart of feminism. Beginning as quest to find out whether feminism can still be a source of personal and political power, I WAS A TEENAGE FEMINIST ultimately redefines the F-word for a new generation.
