Su Friedrich Talks about The Heretics

Heresies (New York, NY: Heresies Collective, 1977-1993), Firestone Library (F), HQ1101 .H4

At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 12 there will be a screening of The Heretics in the Solley Theater at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon St., Princeton, New Jersey.

The Heretics, a feature film by Joan Braderman, documents the 1970’s Heresies Collective and their magazine Heresies. The Collective is presented as a microcosm of the larger international women’s movement, in which thousands of small, private groups of women met together in forms unique to their own settings, to consider their situation—as women in a man’s world—and to devise strategies for unlocking the potential in women’s lives.

Princeton professor Su Friedrich, an original member of the collective, will speak after the screening. More about Su Friedrich:
