What Else She Said

The film [Taking Our Bodies Back] took off and people wrote to us from all over the United States, saying things like, "I knew we were out there doing this thing but I didn't realize there is a whole movement." In some ways, we were documenting it, but we were also supporting it. There was this feedback situation.

It was absolutely the first film about all of that out there. We were on the phone distributing it and hearing from the people who were using it and how they were using it... We also ran into enormous opposition... On the other hand there were enormous positive responses. Women medical students were organizing and showing it on their campuses. In 1975 there was the women's health conference and that was thousands of people seeing the film and cheering... So that film really was a movement builder in some ways as well.
