Prince Albert chapter screens ‘Status Quo’ documentary

The Prince Albert Daily Herald reports, “Film Night Jan. 21, 7 p.m. at JMC Library, 125 12th St. E. ‘Status Quo?: The Unfinished Business of Feminism in Canada’ is a sweeping, invigorating, and disconcerting documentary on the state of feminism, the herstory of the women’s movement, and the status of women in Canada. Free admission; all welcome. Sponsored by the PA Chapter of The Council of Canadians, Cinema Politica, and JMC Public Library.”

Cinema Politica notes, “‘Status Quo?’ 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. ‘Status Quo?’ is crucial viewing for every Canadian, especially those unfamiliar with the vital achievements of the feminist movement. This striking, in-depth documentary pays homage to Canada’s feminist forerunners and raises important questions about where and how we should move on from here.”
