Now I don't want to take anything away from any woman who is figuring out a way to fight and survive this horrible scourge, but don't you think that this whole happy pink cancer world has just gone too far?

    One of the most vivid memories I have of my college learning experience is a class I took on Women in American History. I remember reading Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper and Kate Chopin's The Awakening and if I didn't have feminist inclinations before I read those books, I sure did...

    Where Do We Go Now? Wins Audience Award at Toronto Festival

    Where Do We Go Now? written and directed by Nadine Labaki was the first film I saw in Toronto. As I wrote last week, it's a strong symbol of women sick and tired of the men fighting over nothing trying to make the peace in their small town in Lebanon.

    TIFF: Interview with Malgoska Szumowska - Director of Elles

    Elles tells the story of a journalist - Juliette Binoche - who interviews two young female students about their lives as prostitutes. This is bound to be a controversial film because for one it deals with female sexuality and how these young women use their sexuality to survive. They made this choice but each time they meet a date there is always the fear factor attached. Binoche character develops a strong affinity for these young women and it bleeds into her family life where she lives with her husband and two sons.

Since most people at the screenings I attend are all film people -- writers, buyers, sellers, programmers and ...
