Just saw the movie Mona Lisa Smile, a "pretty period film that combines a quaint pedagogical tale with a feminist dissection of traditional female roles in 1950's society". (Full synopsis here; trailer here) . Basically it's a Girl Power! version of Dead Poets' Society. For the most part I liked the film, and it underscores just how far women have come since the 50's.
Hats off to all the trailblazers -- past, present, and future. (And whatever one may think of Hillary, she should -- in my opinion -- at least be given credit for being a present day trailblazer.)
