Hello all,

I am searching for a few titles that I might be able to order, and the
search is turning out to be less fruitful than I originally thought it
would be. So, I'm appealing to the collective brain for help.

I have a request from an instructor for videos to be used as an
introduction to 1960s and 1970s feminism in America. Her words: "I want
the students to see the power, conflict and diversity within this time
period." What we have found so far has been too specific -- we have
plenty of videos on abortion rights, rights in the workplace, specific
figures in the women's rights movement, lesbian civil rights, and many on
women's rights in other areas of the world.

Also of interest to the instructor are videos showing African-American
women involved in the womens movement in the same time period. ("Standing
on Our Sisters' Shoulders" was shown to her class, but she's looking for
videos that show women talking directly about their involvement in the
feminist movement, etc.).

Another angle is video that discusses sexism within the left or within
the Black Panthers during the 60s/70s.

Several titles that we already know of:

My Feminism
Some American Feminists
Step By Step: Building a Feminist Movement
Black Women, Sexual Politics and the Revolution
A Century of Women

Thanks in advance for any help,
