Latest Episode: Charting a New Course

Feb 26, 2013 Season 1 Episode 3 watch on (Paid)

A focused look at the workplace, where individual women crashed through the glass ceiling, and to the courts, where they waged a battle against the “hidden injuries” of battery, harassment and rape. Two women — in very different ways — asserted women’s control over their own bodies. When Anita Hill reluctantly stepped forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, she brought the issue out of the shadows. At the same time, pop superstar Madonna asserted a naked and aggressive sexuality, outside the control of men. However, even as the Movement achieved long-sought goals, a new generation of women were re-evaluating some of its most basic assumptions, especially the balance between work and family. By the 2000s, the movement was again under attack from conservatives seeking to rollback abortion and contraception laws, and by younger women fleeing the very word “feminism.” But the Movement is far from over, as new fronts in the struggle have opened up, especially overseas.
