Heather Booth: Changing the World is the third in my trilogy about activist women and the times they live in. As I reflect on my filmmaking career, and review the films I have made, clearly, I make films about parts of me. As a childless woman, I understand by now, that these films are my children, and that I have gone through birth pangs for each of them.
My filmography of Grace Paley was not such a difficult birth because Grace was totally there for the audience to love, just as they have loved her Collected Stories. Esther Broner, was a relatively easy birth, mainly because her book, A Weave of Women, was an invaluable resource and the women of the Feminist Seder were all there to support me.
