More details about the film:
Born in Flames is a film by feminist film maker Lizzie Borden that takes place in a future dystopia where women have to create their own justice to get any justice at all.

The film is a cult classic with some great scenes that can empower women to fight for and find their liberation. There is a very famous scene where a woman is being assaulted by two men on the street when a bike gang of women come to her aide, scaring the men away.

  1. Margaret Atwood's book A Handmaid's Tale was made into a movie as well. If you can find it you could show that sometime too. Sorry I will miss it!
