This film by Joyce Follet follows the lives of eight Midwestern women, six of whom became founders of NOW. Their stories illustrate the continuity and diversity of 20th-century feminism, as they describe the labor, civil rights, and political movements of the 1940s and 1950s that led them to take action. (1998; 56 minutes.)
