Gender Results - Hollywood vs the Supreme Court: Ten Decades of Gender and Film

Publisher: Cool Titles

You'll never watch a movie the same way again. Silver medalist in the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards. Eileen Moore, a Justice on the California Court of Appeal, presents a fresh comparison on gender biases that women face in film and within the US Supreme Court. From early stirrings of women's rights in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York; through the pioneers of female equality, Moore delves into gender as no other author has before. Movies have traditionally been held to be a reflection of society. But are they? Did movies foster the rights of women, or keep them harnessed to outdated roles? What about our legal system? How did our Supreme Court break the hearts of women, and then protect them? This unique look into the history of women's rights and film gives an accurate view of society through the years. Readers gain appreciation of the sacrifice of previous generations and get a look at how Supreme Court decisions affect what viewers see today on film and on TV. From workplace equality to women's rights, film and our legal system combined to both help and hinder American women.
