    It really is a great initiative! I’ll leave a review of something as soon as an idea comes to mind. Do you also allow literature reviews?


  4. Maybe you’ll want to put Renegade Nuns on there, it’s a radical feminist novel. https://purplesagefem.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/book-review-renegade-nuns/


  5. Every time Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty burn up the screen in “Splendor in the Grass”–I get millions of hits on this:

    Everybody knows they are seeing a proto-feminist movie, but not sure why or how it is feminist. I like filling it in; read the comments too! Barbara Loden, who played Bud’s “fast” sister, was the wife of director Elia Kazan, which was also considered a bit shocking at the time.

    Writing it now, I would 1) add more about Bud’s sister and 2) point out how at the end, Deanie has taken full responsibility for her emotions and *grown up*–something beautiful arm-candy women of that era were actively prevented from doing.

    The author of this amazing play, William Inge, also wrote the highly-charged and highly-gendered PICNIC (also recommended!) which you will want to see for Kim Novak’s dance alone:

    (Holy God, I can’t breathe, did you say something?)

    Inge was gay and committed suicide; he understood the untenable nature of gender in our world very well. Like Tennessee Williams, many (most?) of his plays dramatized the unworkable positions women were placed in by men’s desires. I think it was Dworkin (a big admirer of Williams), who said gay men understood male desire and sexual obsession better than women did; and if they were empathetic (big if) might understand women’s social position. I think Inge instinctively did.

    Thanks Gallus! I love a chance to mention “Splendor in the Grass” which I think hasn’t aged nearly as much as it should have. ❤

    I was nearly Deanie myself in high school and if it hadn't been the rockin 70s, I surely would have been. I identify far too much with this story, as I identify too much with "Hero Worship" by the B-52s. Thank god for hippies (actually Yippies), who snapped me out of my dopey Betty-and-Veronica-teenybopper-hood!


  6. Okay, as usual, tried to post that there, but it shows up here. (?)

    Grandma gonna go nutz with WordPress (sounds like the title of a cutesy country & western novelty song).


  7. I don’t know if this fits, but I watch a lot of docs and then talk about them. This one still gets a lot of views…..

    I have a few more. If you think that they will work well in that format.


  8. Thanks so much Gallus! I loved that Julie Bindel piece and flattered to be in her company. ❤

    (PS: animals misgendered for the win! My cat is just as upset as her Maisie is.)
