Synopsis

Are we watching a woman pretending to be a man, or a man pretending to be a woman? Most of all, we see a caricature of something the filmmaker felt we should avoid.

The Consequences of Feminism is an excellent example of the courage with which Guy criticized the standards of male society. In it, she points out the senseless limits place of women in society. Upon closer observation, we can see that at least unconsciously this was the result of attempts to suppress homosexuality.
