Behind the veil--nuns by Gloria Demars( visu )
5 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
"The history of nuns mirrors the history of all women -- in what we are taught about the past women are almost invisible. Although today's one million nuns outnumber priests two to one, they must struggle to be heard by the all-male Roman Catholic hierarchy from which they are excluded. 'Behind the veil: nuns' is the first film ever to record from a global perspective the turbulent history and remarkable achievements of women in religion, from the pre-Christian Celtic communities to the radical sisters of the 1980s. Contemporary nuns of strength, dignity and commitment speak of their lives and of their predecessors."--NFB catalogue

Working Mothers, a series of ten short films designed to promote discussion about the contradictions society creates in the lives of women, is as relevant now as it was when it was produced by Kathleen Shannon in 1973.

Portrait of the artist -- as an old lady ( visu )
2 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Paraskeva Clark, artist, socialist, feminist, is her own woman at her own cost. This film is a cameo of an irascible and often times touching artist whose work has won her a place in exhibitions and private collections. Born in Russia in 1898, she eventually married a Canadian and moved to Toronto. Because her canvasses reflect a strong social conscience, she had to struggle hard to earn a place in the nation's ultra-conservative galleries. (Awards: Montréal; Melbourne.)
Women in the 40's and 50's ( visu )
4 editions published between 1977 and 1991 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Women at war (1942): This British film accepts women's participation in the war effort as a natural outgrowth of their peacetime pursuits. Wings on her shoulder (1943): A recruitment film in which the main message is that women fill support positions "so that men might fly". Proudly she marches (1943): Another recruitment film that, while extolling the armed services, implies that these jobs are temporary and unnatural for women. Careers and cradles (1947): Using a heavy-handed approach, this film tries to show that women have achieved equality. Women at work (1958): This film accepts the waste of women's talents in menial jobs, elevating them to the status of career. Service in the sky (1957): While glamourizing a service job, this film also suggests marriage as the natural end of a woman's working life. Needles and pins: In this story of a factory seamstress, a brief moment of glamour is substituted for genuine job satisfaction. Is it a woman's world? (1957): This film embodies the myth that women manipulate men through sex and marriage

Nous sommes des ingénieures ( visu )
3 editions published between 1983 and 1993 in French and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Lyne, ingénieure des travaux publics, Carolyn, ingénieure biomédicale, et Denise, ingénieure de l'environnement, sont de bons exemples de ces femmes qui, en nombre croissant, s'engagent dans cette profession autrefois réservée aux hommes. Le film adopte une attitude positive face à la présence des femmes dans les domaines de la science et de la technologie. Il provoquera des débats sur les stéréotypes qui étouffent encore les aspirations professionnelles des femmes quand elles décident d'opter pour des métiers non conventionnels. (Prix : Elmhurst.)
