This week's film discussion concerns Ida Lupino's "problem play" NOT WANTED. Patronized in the workplace, conveniently forgotten after the transmission of zygote material, and held by her parents as scarcely deserving anything more than a future as a dependent live-in drudge and heifer of some male, the heroine must negotiate the institutional sublimation of the statistically physically weaker sex. Where's Alfred Russel Wallace's guaranteed income when we need it?!!


Women’s History Month discussion seminar
Featuring four films with women with agency, viewed via Youtube

Syllabus

All discussion sessions will transpire on Saturday mornings, 9-10 am Pacific Time.
