On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, CSWGS is delighted to bring to Houston Mary Dore, producer and director of the acclaimed "She's Beautiful When She's Angry" (2014), as part of this year's Gray/Wawro Lectures in Gender, Health, and Well-being.  The screening and her remarks will take place at 6pm in the Auditorium of the BioScience Research Collaborative, between the Rice University Campus and the Texas Medical Center.

We also hope the film inspires you, and that you will support our work by joining us as a Partner of the Center.  

Dore movie poster“She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry” resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966 to 1971. “She’s Beautiful” takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).  Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a world-wide revolution.

Dore headshotMary Dore is an award-winning documentary producer who brings an activist perspective to her films.  She began her career working with a Boston film collective that produced independent historical documentaries, including “Children of Labor” (1977) which premiered at the New York Film Festival.  She has produced television series for Maine Public Broadcasting and 13/WNET in New York. She produced and co-directed the feature documentary “The Good Fight: the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War” (with Noel Buckner and Sam Sills), which screened at the Toronto, Sundance, and London Film Festivals.  She has produced dozens of television documentaries for PBS, New York Times TV, A&E, and the Discovery Channel. Her TV work has won Emmys, Cine Golden Eagles, and Cable Ace Awards.

Doors to the BRC Lobby will open at 5:15pm for a reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres.  The program will begin at 6pm with remarks from Mary Dore, followed by the film screening and a question and answer session with the audience.
