The Girl in the Show (USA, 1 hour 49 min)

Directed by: Anna Fields

From female pop culture powerhouses dominating the entertainment landscape to memoirs from today’s most vocal comediennes shooting up the bestseller lists, women in comedy have never been more influential. Marking this cultural shift, "The Girl in the Show" combines amusing and honest personal narratives with the historical, political, and cultural contexts of the feminist movement. This mutually symbiotic journey explores how comedy and feminism have grown hand in hand to give women a stronger voice in the ongoing fight for equality, and ultimately reveals the urgency of our continued struggle towards a truly intersectional 4th Wave that promotes collaboration over competition.
