Intro to Women’s Studies: A Personal Journey Through Film

Maybe you grew up watching movies with female characters like
Cinderella, Belle, Snow White, or Ariel. Maybe you’ve wondered
why there are stereotypes about women being bad drivers or
ignorant about sports. Maybe you want to know about feminism
and the women’s movement. The Introduction to Women’s Studies:
A Personal Journey Through Film can help you answer these
questions. Though it focuses on the experience of women, it’s
appropriate for anyone who wants to learn to critically examine
films while learning about the history of the women’s movement
and how gender, race, and social class influence us. Women have
earned their right to stand up and be recognized as equal partners
and reap the benefits of their hard work. As the anonymous quote
goes, “History is Herstory too.”
