Yesterday I was filmed for nearly three hours by the most intelligent, sympathetic, and visionary of directors for a film about feminism and about my work. We talked a great deal about An American Bride in Kabul, Woman's Inhumanity to Woman, and Women and Madness, as well as about my research into honor-based violence and honor killing. The film's working title is: "Feminists: What Were They Thinking?" Director/producer and interviewer Johanna Demetrakas, producers Lisa Remington and Cheryl Swannack have formed the "Crazy Wisdom Production Company." The feminists whom they are interviewing were all photographed by Cynthia MacAdams in her book Emergence, which was published in 1977. Among many others, the women include Kate Millett, Lily Tomlin, Patti Smith, Gloria Steinem, Michelle Phillips, Jane Fonda, Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson--and myself. Johanna allowed the entire crew to ask me questions and their questions were earnest, deeply felt, and important. Here we are, posing all together; here I am talking to Johanna; and here I am, posing next to my books.
