Feminist Friday: Anne Lewis/Fast Food Women

Note: Although I want to keep this blog focused on writing and the more exciting facets of my life, I’ve worried that in the past few months, I’ve become disconnected from feminist issues and activism that mean a lot to me. With that in mind, I’ve decided to devote Fridays to feminist people and organizations that make the world a better place. I might even discuss a feminist issue close to my heart. I think that this will help in part to make me feel more engaged with the feminist community, without making this blog more political than I’d like. Thanks for reading!

Austin filmmaker Anne Lewis‘s Fast Food Women (1992) has been nominated for inclusion in the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress.

The nomination was given by Women in Film and Video, an organization which promotes professional development and achievements for women in film, television, multimedia, and related disciplines. WiFV also nominated He’s Only Missing (Robin Smith, 1978), A League of Their Own (Penny Marshall, 1992), and Paris is Burning (Jennie Livingston, 1990).
