Description - Chick Flicks by B. Ruby Rich
Part journalistic chronicle, part memoir and part cultural history, these essays aim to capture the birth and growth of feminist film. In the hope that a new generation of feminist film culture might be revitalized by reclaiming its own history, Rich introduces each essay with an autobiographical prologue that describes the intellectual, political and personal moments from which the work arose. Topics covered include the antiporn movement, the films of Yvonne Rainer, a Julie Christie visit to Washington and the evocative film "Maedchen in Uniform". The result is a volume that traces the development of women's involvement in cinema, as well as the author's own involvement.
