A Hero for Daisy

On a cold spring day in 1976 nineteen women said enough is enough. Before anybody knew there was a women’s soccer team, before two incredible Black sisters battled it out at Wimbleton, and long before the reality of Title IX filtered down to the towns and suburbs of America, nineteen women got tired of being cold and dirty. This rush of a film profiles Olympic rower Chris Ernst who masterminded the Yale 1976 women’s crew protest against the shockingly substandard conditions in which they had to function. Great footage, great interviews, great laughs and great shoulders to stand on.
