Women Reply ★★★

As other reviewers have said, it's quite out-of-date, but on some level maybe that's okay. It works as a powerful statement of the ideals of the second wave, especially the comments on the sexual duality of being a woman. While there's many obvious problems with second wave feminism (ones that are especially clear looking back on it from 30+ years later), I'm glad that this film exists; even just as a historical document it's indispensable.

"To be continued..." is the perfect ending. Activism is always in flux, in progress, attempting to right the wrongs and the missed opportunities of the groups before it. I would love to see a sequel made today, if it could be accomplished which as much style, grace and succinctness that Varda achieved here.
