SPECIAL SCREENING

LET THEM WEAR TOWELS

Directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 50 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE LET THEM WEAR TOWELS
During the 1977 World Series, Sports Illustrated reporter Melissa Ludtke was denied access to the players’ locker room. After a very public fight, the door was opened, but the debate about female journalists in the male sanctum of the clubhouse remained. Through interviews with pioneering female sports writers, Let Them Wear Towels captures the raw behavior, humorous retaliation, angry lawsuits and remarkable resolve that went into the struggle for equal access for women reporters.

Screening with: Pat XO
Female Director(s), Sports, Documentary
