I don't think women are being roused to stand up against oppression at all. The film ends by saying, well look what a good place we are in now compared to countries like Saudi Arabia, look how far we've come. Thank God those women did what they did so we could have the vote today. This is not good enough.

I recognize the horrible irony of saying this as a white, cis, able-bodied woman, but feminist spaces need to prioritise the platforms of marginalised voices; poor women, LGBT+ women, disabled women, women of colour, and so on.
