This Women's History Month resonates with great significance in light of the current political agenda that threatens to roll back hard-won rights of women nationwide. Women have resisted with solidarity marches, and the building of progressive coalitions, bringing transnational feminism to the forefront. Now more than ever, our films serve as an invaluable resource, illustrating the clarion call for the continued advancement of women. WMM New Release Heather Booth: Changing the World could not be more timely in this current political era, where communities nationwide are looking to pave a forward path for continued progress.
HEATHER BOOTH: CHANGING THE WORLD (Lilly Rivlin) chronicles the little known story of one of America's biggest change makers - whose name you have probably never heard of. For nearly 50 years, Heather Booth has led some of the most impactful social change movements from civil rights, to labor reform, reproductive rights, environmental justice, and more. As a popular "go-to" organizer and co-founder of JANE, Booth's ability to enact real change has been sought out by key leaders like Senator Elizabeth Warren.
