Welcome to Feminist Truths

We are reborn! Getting shut down by lawyers working for the mafia (it is a long story) hasn't put an end to Feminist Truths.

The good news is that Feminist Truths is back and I have made it my quest in life to deliver truth to the masses.

The Truth about My Fair Lady

ENTERTAINMENT - The following film (My Fair Lady, starring Audrey Hepburn) brings up many issues concerning class and the role of women. My only complaint is the end of the film, otherwise the film makes it pretty clear that Professor Henry Higgins is a stubborn know-it-all patriarch.

Eliza Doolittle however is the true hero of the story. Shows what you can do when you've got "gumption".

Made in 1964 "My Fair Lady" won 8 Academy Awards... not bad for a film with strong feminist undertones (despite the ending). You will see what I mean...

Note: On YouTube the film is broken down into 21 parts. There should be a link at the end of each part to the next part of the film.
