Review of Youth and Sexism

A youth reporter's piece about a student film called "Sexism: Where is it Now?" The reporter interviews the teens who made the film, and uses a couple of clips from the film (not yet finished.) The film tape was good - the mothers of some of the film producers have some revealing comments about the changing nature of sexism, and their own experiences growing up. The radio piece felt a bit removed from the topic at hand - it was sort of about the making of the film, and sort of about the topic of sexism. Both are hard topics to make a short radio report about. Some of the young people's impressions about the nature of sexism were revealing. Having grown up in the midst of the feminist movement, the students comments reminded me of how far things have come, but also, for better or worse, how removed the topic and even the term "sexism" is from our "national conversation" today.
