Out of the Question: Women, Media, and the Art of Inquiry

Out of the Question: Women, Media, and the Art of Inquiry is a new 38-minute documentary by award-winning filmmaker Naomi McCormack. It charts the careers of five women and their experiences as researchers and audience members for the new media of their era. The film provides a compelling window into gendered cultures of work, media, and the social sciences in 1940s America and raises questions of ongoing significance about them.

The film is also supported by a website (still a little under construction) that includes teaching resources as well as new research on pioneering women in communication and media studies.
