abstract
"Feminism has shaped the society we live in. But just how far has it brought us, and how relevant is it today? Status Quo? zeroes in on key concerns such as violence against women, access to abortion, and universal childcare, asking how much progress we have truly made on these issues. It uncovers answers that are provocative and at times shocking. Rich with archival material and startling contemporary stories, Status Quo? is crucial viewing for every Canadian, especially those unfamiliar with the vital achievements of the feminist movement. This striking, in-depth documentary pays homage to Canada's feminist forerunners and raises important questions about where and how we should move on from here."--Container.
