There have been a lot of films, documentaries, music and other forms of media that help get specific messages out there about women and the objectification, lack of status, power, and general equality within the Untied States. There are a great deal of women on a daily basis who walk these lines between what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. I read a great deal of the reviews on this documentary after watching it and found that those who didn't like it, have valid points however, as a filmmaker, actress and advocate for women in power I feel some missed the overall objective and are nit picking at the topics they wished to have been focused on within the film. That's great! It means its effective and making people think! There are so many more things that need to be addressed within the genre of women in power, women lives and how they are not more or less than a man. That equality we are inevitable striving for within our given fields. I believe that within the film there were topics that were missed that might have been nice to touch upon, however with only an 1 1/2 to discuss so many different and important topics, you can't over burden the viewer. The reason I am giving this movie a 5 out of 5 is because it made me feel A. I wasn't alone out there as a woman who has been talked down to as a filmmaker. I have experienced very sexist moments from both men and women and B. It has spurred questions and inspired me to create more media that is female positive with non traditional roles for both men and women. Regardless on whether you agree or disagree with the way the content is laid out or if you would have preferred to see one topic or the other, there is an unfortunate overwhelming amount of sexism in this world targeted primarily at women and media has a huge hand to play in it.
