Blind Justice: Women and the Law

This group of four animated programs provocatively traces the ways and means in which justice has been applied to women in Western society. Blind Justice was cheered at the San Francisco Film Festival as an imaginative antidote to complacent attitudes towards women’s rights.

All Men Are Created Equal traces the origins of many basic concepts of Western law to ancient Greece and shows just how unequal men and women are before the law. Someone Must Be Trusted shows the inherent bias of tribunals and courts of law. Murders Most Foul is based on an actual case. It is set in a British Crown Court, where the rules of drama are twisted to expose a villain who gets away with murder, a murdered wife who gets her own back, and a judge who is forced to eat his words. Some Protection shows the devastating effect of detention and imprisonment on young girls who are sent away "for their own protection." The voice and the words are those of a young woman inmate, her furious words running to expletives with which students are familiar—but that some teachers may wish to avoid. (30 minutes)
