Documentary: Status Quo, The Unfinished Business of Feminism in Canada

This is part of our IWD 2014 series.

Feminism has shaped the society we live in. But just how far has it brought us, and how relevant is it today?

The National Film Board presentation Status Quo? (Karen Cho, 2012, 87 min) zeroes in on key concerns such as violence against women, access to abortion, and universal childcare, asking how much progress we have truly made on these issues.

It uncovers answers that are provocative and at times shocking. Rich with archival material and startling contemporary stories, Status Quo? is crucial viewing for every Canadian. View the trailer below or visit the film's official site here.
