A context for Strength: Historical Struggles, Contemporary Heroics

by Elizabeth Schroeder

Fuse, Spring 1985, v. 8, no. 6, pp. 25-28

A review of Stronger Than Before by feminist artists Marusia Bociurkiw and Ruth Bishop, a video about women and resistance, an ambitious project trying to link all forms of women's struggles against oppression throughout world history. The author feels that the video is limited to professional women, and does not include the working class, and that it only focuses on local Toronto issues, instead of looking at world history which the video claims that it will do. There is also a short review of Heroics, a video installation by Sara Diamond.
