AV Geeks' HOW TO BE A WOMAN!

America's number one A/V Geek, and longtime CAC
favorite, Skip Elsheimer returns with rare educational
films that strive to teach America's young females
exactly How To Be A Woman!
As the daughters of the baby boom reached adolescence,
the American school system struggled to educate them on
matters of sexual & social development lessons that were not
always being taught at home. To the teacher uncomfortable
with such topics, classroom films were a godsend. They depicted
the reproductive system in anatomical detail (Growing Girls) a
wide array of social issues, from the importance of cooking skills
(You are the Judge, starring a young Bonnie Franklin), to selfdefense
(Attack) and how to say "No" (the bluntly titled Saying
No). Often corny, sometimes frightening, these cinematic life lessons
curated and introduced by Skip Elsheimer, founder of the A/V
Geeks educational film archive, provide a fascinating window to the
hopes and fears of parents and educators in mid-century America.
And unlike school, boys will be allowed to view these films.
