Storyboard Text

  • HI! I'M ROBIN MORGAN, THE LEADER FROM THE RADICAL NEW YORK FEMINIST GROUP AND I'M HERE TO TEACH YOU ABOUT THE 2ND FEMINIST WAVE FROM 1960 TO 1980
  • IT ALL STARTED DUE TO THE FOUNDATION OF PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN, CREATED BY JOHN. F KENNEDY
  • THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT BY ONE SIDE IT SUPPORTED THAT WOMEN WERE PREPARED FOR MOTHERHODD, HOWEVER OTHER ISSUES WERE REINFORCED SUCH AS PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INJUSTICES INCLUDING AFFAIRS FROM RAPE, REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, WORKPLACE SAFETY AND EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION.
  • WE WANTED TO GAIN GENDER EQUALITY IN POSITIONS SUCH AS LEADERSHIP IN HIGHER EDUCATION, BUSINESS AND POLITICS
  • AND ACCEPTANCE OVER FEMALE SEXUALITY AND CONTROL OVER OUR BODIES
  • THE MOVEMENT BEGAN BECAUSE WE WOMEN, WERE AGAINST THE IDEA THAT IF WE DEDICATE OURSELVES TO CHILD REARING AND HOME MAKING OUR LIVES WOULD BE FULL.
