To those who claim that feminism has had its day, BCRW offers a brief, fascinating, and irrefutable rebuttal. In Feminism: Controversies, Challenges, Actions, filmmaker Rebecca Haimowitz interviews some of the most exciting voices in feminist scholarship and activism. Commissioned in 2005 to reflect the first 30 years of the Scholar & Feminist conference, this half-hour documentary asks feminists across generations about past controversies, current challenges, and future actions of a feminist movement that remains as vibrant as it is varied.

This film features interviews with Jennifer Baumgardner, Ana Liza Caballes, Leslie Calman, Lisa Duggan, Jane Gould, Hester Eisenstein, Amber Hollibaugh, Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Janet Jakobsen, Temma Kaplan, Vivien Labaton, Dawn Lundy Martin, Dr. Andree-Nicola McLaughlin, Sunita Metha, Nancy K. Miller, Elizabeth Minnich, Debra O'Gara, Riya Ortiz, Ann Pellegrini, Amy Richards, Susan Reimer Sacks, Dean Spade, and Emily Woo Yamasaki. It was included in issue 3.3/4.1 of our webjournal S&F Online ( barnard.edu/sfonline/sfxxx/film.htm ), "The Scholar & Feminist XXX: Past Controversies, Present Challenges, Future Feminisms."
