“This film is evidence that feminism – whether second wave, third wave or no wave –
hasn’t ceased to be a vital, many-hued movement with something to offer women of any age.”
“So wise and lively that you should bring along your fathers, brothers and boyfriends”
St John’s International Women’s Film Festival
March was Women’s History Month, so “I Was a Teenage Feminist” did a lot of travelling. From Lille to New Delhi to Stockholm, the screenings were hosted by great women’s organizations. Read on to learn more about them and the film:
This May: Belgrade!
In late May, I’m finally getting to accompany my well-traveled film for a festival sponsored by the Anti-Trafficking Center, a Serbian Women’s Organization. I’ll be on a panel as well as doing a Q&A after the film.
March & April Screenings
On March 8, International Women’s Day, Sud Education hosted a screening in Lille, France. They described the film as “un voyage drôle et émouvant.”
Also on March 8th, we were thrilled to have our Indian premiere at The 2nd Women’s Film Festival in Chennai, India.
On March 24th in a program called “Women Today: Expectations vs Reality, the American Center in New Delhi hosted a screening and panel. Thank you to the US Embassy for pulling it together (your tax dollars at work!). Here’s a little article on the event.
Next was Stockholm on April 5th and the interestingly-named “Brutes, Vampires and Females” festival, sponsored in part by the Romanian Institute (which explains the vampires, I guess). The film was part of a program called Having It All: Bye-Bye/Buy-Buy, Feminism? with a panel discussion that included the question: Vad hände med F-ordet?

ABOUT THE FILM:
When did feminism become a bad word? Why is it that some young, independent, progressive women in today’s society feel uncomfortable identifying with the F-word? Join filmmaker Therese Shechter as she takes a funny, moving and very personal journey into the heart of feminism. Armed with a video camera and an irreverent sense of humor, Shechter talks with feminist superstars, rowdy frat boys, liberated Cosmo girls and Radical Cheerleaders, all in her quest to find out whether feminism can still be a source of personal and political power.
Please forward widely. Thanks for your support!
