TAXES ARE A WOMAN'S ISSUE
For every woman who pays taxes and uses public services, and every man who cares about an effective and fair tax system,Taxes Are a Woman’s Issuereveals the U.S. as a welfare nation, whether you are rich, poor, a corporation or an individual, and critiques a tax structure that penalizes over half of tax payers. The National Council for Research on Women and authors Mimi Abramovitz and Sandra Morgen dispel myths about the current welfare system and expose how the IRS-supported tax system was created in and caters to a time before women entered the work force.
Resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.
