Film Screening and Discussion with Honors Professor Carla Golden

IC Feminist United will host a screening of “I Was a Teenage Feminist” in Textor 103 on Thursday, November 30 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. A discussion moderated by Professor Carla Golden will follow about how the documentary, made in 2005, holds up today.


Here’s the film’s synopsis: “Why is it that some 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. Armed with a video camera and an irreverent sense of humor, Shechter talks with feminist superstars, rowdy frat boys, liberated Cosmo girls and Radical Cheerleaders, all in her quest to find out whether feminism can still be a source of personal and political power.”
