...as letter readers relate to, or argue against, or reconsider issues raised by letter writers: the history of public feminism is restaged so as to create a new kind of contemporary public feminism. One that is intentional, intersectional, face-to-face, and handmade.
— Megan Moodie, LA Review of Books
Yours in Sisterhood
From 2015 to 2017, a filmmaking team traveled across the United States speaking with women from all walks of American life. Each interviewee was given a letter from the 1970s, written to the editor of Ms. Magazine, the country’s first feminist magazine, and then was allowed to respond. A striking comparison between 1970s and 2010s feminism and culture emerges, giving a new look at the old slogan, “the personal is political.”
