DSC_1675 DSC_1656 DSC_1662 DSC_1664 DSC_1669

On tonight’s episode of Full Circle we feature the documentary film She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry… She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern woman’s movement from 1966 to 1971.. She’s beautiful takes us from the founding of now (national organization of women), with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millet 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..
