Q&A with Irene Lusztig

In the 1970s, Ms. received several thousand letters to the editor detailing all manner of injustices—from discrimination at work to failed relationships—as well as criticisms of the magazine’s feminism. The staff responded to some, but the overwhelming majority of them went unpublished. Starting in 2015, Irene Lusztig returned to the sites where some of the letters originated and recorded women of all ages reciting them directly to the camera. The readers also respond with their own commentaries. These fascinating vignettes cohere into a remarkable study of the way things have and haven’t changed for women. U.S. Premiere
