What You Take for Granted
A film by Michelle Citron
1983, 75 minutes, Color, 16mm
Order No. W
The tentative friendship of Anna, a feisty truck driver, and Diana, an upper middle-class doctor, provides the core for an unusual, intimate and moving look at women's experiences in jobs traditionally held by men. Based on actual interviews of forty working women, the film intercuts the story of Anna and Diana with fictionalized interviews of four other non-traditionally employed women.

Available only with DAUGHTER RITE.


    "Citron's film is a breakthrough. It makes women in nontraditional jobs visible."
    Lauren Sugarman
    Chicago Women in Trades
