Lady Smarts & Parts

There are only three more episodes before election day, and we have an exciting line up for you tomorrow on This American Election! Jennifer Lee, an entertainment professional, a feminist, and a filmmaker, will be our special guest! Lee is currently working on a new documentary, called Feminist Stories from the Liberation Front. The clip above is a sneak peek. She’ll be on to talk about her film and offer her opinions on women’s progress, the binder brouhaha and more. From her bio:

Jennifer Lee is an entertainment professional, a feminist, and a filmmaker. She works towards developing a stronger female narrative in American culture through media and politics. With an extensive background in the feature film industry, she has held the title of producer, editor, visual effects compositor, and documentary filmmaker. Beginning her career at Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic, her many credits there include GHOST, BACK TO THE FUTURE 2, HOOK, THE RING, and FORREST GUMP.

In addition to working with such Hollywood studios as Warner Bros. Studios and Technicolor, she has an extensive background in independent filmmaking. Her first documentary film MARY JANE COLTER: THE DESERT VIEW, narrated by Ellen Burstyn, was an official selection at many film festivals including the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and won the Bronze Apple Award from the National Educational Media Network.

She created and directed her own film festival in Winslow, Arizona. The Winslow Film Festival was held in the historic Rialto Theater from 2002 through 2004. For three years the festival screened independent films and hosted a visual effects lecture series that included visual effects professionals. She continues working in feature films in Los Angeles on such films as PIRATES OF THE  CARIBBEAN, BEOWULF, ENCHANTED, and A THOUSAND WORDS.

Jennifer is currently finishing the documentary FEMINIST: STORIES FROM WOMEN’S LIBERATION, a film exploring the significance of the second wave of the women’s liberation movement on our lives. Interviewees include author Betty Friedan, Robin Morgan, Gloria Steinem,  and many others.

    “Vote with your lady smarts, not your lady parts.”

    Amen to that! It’s really a sad state of affairs that we’ve been reduced to even having this discussion. It’s just bizarre that some women are now convinced that they must put the government in charge of their ladyparts, as if we ourselves are incapable of taking care of them. How in the heck did we get to this point?

    I was thinking of Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale and what a cautionary story that is regarding why you might want to maintain a wee bit of independence over your own ladyparts.

    All through history the struggle has been about less government control over us. It was the Gov that made contraception illegal, abortion illegal, the right to vote illegal. Women had to fight AGAINST government control of our ladyparts and here we are in 2012 acting as if the Gov is somehow qualified to save our ladyparts. All I can say is, WTH?

  2. Anna Belle, for some reason you are not updating in my blogroll? No idea why!

    Oh and, did you see this:

    Obama sycophant, Gwen Ifill, tells why the object of her 2008 doting will lose.

    • Thanks for the link. I’d seen that one floating around, but just got a chance to read it because of your link. Interesting stuff. Sounds like Ifill doesn’t expect The Once to win, but she’s not ready to come right out and say it.

  3. And this is an interesting read. Smart Ladies with Lady Parts see an adult in the room:

    More women see Romney as safer choice
