The documentary film Status Quo: The Unfinished Business of Feminism in Canada will be shown at the Williams Lake Library program room on Wednesday, March 20 starting at 7 p.m.
This is a free event.
The film is directed by Karen Cho. In comprehensive and clear-minded fashion the film discusses issues including reproductive rights, violence against women, child care, and more.
It includes archival and recent interviews on the subject with journalist Adrienne Clarkson, Dr. Henry Morgentaler and a number of prominent politicians and feminist thinkers.
Not surprisingly, this look at the history of the women’s movement in Canada concludes that the struggle is even greater today, at a time when government concern over economic challenges seems to take precedence over progressive social issues, states the introduction.
