Born out of the revolutionary zeal of the ’60s and ’70s, the modern women’s liberation movement brought feminism to the mainstream, with bra burnings and massive protests in the name of empowering women to feel equal to their male counterparts at home and in the workplace. But this revolution wasn’t without tension—issues of race, sexuality and the role of men within it all threatened to tear the movement apart. Elucidated by interviews from participants as varied as Rita Mae Brown and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE’S ANGRY illuminates the roots of the modern battle for gender equality, one that still rages to this very day.
