A dynamic and engaging piece and an important step toward rekindling discussions of feminism as we move toward the 21st century.
— Angela Davis
Highly recommended…makes its point with no time wasted and leaves the viewer wanting to talk more.
— Jan Albert, Lower East Side Girls Club
Great for sparking a discussion about what feminism really is. There are so many definitions and misconceptions of the word—the film allows people to talk about theirs without feeling they might be off base. It’s a great way to start reclaiming the word!
— Karen Heck, Hardy Girls, Healthy Women up


A short video about feminism.
10 minutes.

Created to inspire dialogue and debate, this irreverent, visually-engaging documentary gets to the heart of feminism by dismantling the word and its many meanings. The F-Word is an ideal discussion starter on issues related to gender, sex roles and stereotypes, and the history of the feminist movement.
