“El Topo” Starring Alejandro Jodorowsky and Brontis Jodorowsky

How Television Changed Feminism

Over a hundred years ago Susan B. Anthony and Mary Wollstonecraft were part of a woman’s movement centered on getting women equal rights under the law; the rights to vote and not be considered property.
