Excellent short film because these images clearly show ‘women are not human’ and social issues are defined by men for men – never women. Women your only place apparently is to serve men in whatever shape or form men consider appropriate. The generic name for this system is patriarchy. All other forms such as race, class, homopbia emanate from the patriarchal system.

But ‘women are not human’ say men.

I liked that, and I think I’ll show it to a few of my anarchist friends who are interested in these issues.

I thought the “smile more” bit was good and it reminded me of a radio show I was listening to once. The two male hosts pertained to be feminist and against racism and classism, but when they interviewed two belly dancers (there to talk about women reclaiming their bodies through dance) the hosts kept telling them to “giggle more”!

Also, ever noticed how even in magazines for men’s clothes not a single one of the male models is smiling? 8)
