Even though feminism is considered the most successful social movement of the 20th century, there is no big topic documentary that deals with its status quo. So here it comes: Feminism WTF! The achievements of the women’s movement influence our lives every day. Still, when we say “Feminism”, we might not mean the same thing. This film reflects on current debates and analyses the potential of intersectional feminism to profoundly change our future societies.
