Between 1972 and 1980, at the height of its popularity, Ms. Magazine was being read by women from all walks of life, thousands having written letters to the publication expressing both gratitude and annoyance at the magazine’s take on feminist issues.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Irene Lusztig collects a sampling of these letters (most of which were never published) and captures everyday women reading them out loud. This simple concept delivers profound results. Although much has changed in the past forty years, societal issues—and issues within the feminist movement that include racism, homophobia and transphobia—still plague the lives of women today.

Director Lusztig calls Yours in Sisterhood as much a study in “unfinished business” in the work of feminism as it is a cinematic love letter to the powerful resolve of women whose voices are finally being heard.
