I agree there is not a great all around womens history film. I teach womens
history and have a good collection of the early womens films but there is not
a great history all on one film. I use shorter films for each class I teach.
The film you mentioned Making sense of the Sixties is called Making
Nonsense of the Sixties by a group of us that are upset with the politics and
choices of the filmmakers.
Paul Potter is dead, Robert Sheer (sp) writes for LA Times and the Nation Mag
