No. 77: The Way We Were

Proto-Jewish feminism

Print Email

1973, dir. Sydney Pollack. This Barbra Streisand/Robert Redford classic gave the world “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell”—the five-word anthem of a generation of brash, curly-haired, politically active Jewish gals, scorned in favor of more demure, which is to say WASPy, women. Think it’s no longer relevant? Take it away, Carrie Bradshaw.

Definite proto-feminist movie for me at 10. Bonus points for the Sex and the City clip.
