"Proud, angry, humorous, wistful and bitter voices express layers of feelings and experiences that will be a revelation to both men and women." -The New York Times

"One of the best films about women ever made." -Vic Skolnick, American Independent Series

With verve and humor this multi-award winning classic documentary pays homage to the commonality of women's experience while showing the love/hate relationship that women have with the task of cleaning the family's clothes. As we see the clothes flapping in the wind and hear the voices - some proud, some angry, some wistful - we realize that doing laundry calls forth deep feelings about one's role in life. Some remember when their mothers and grandmothers tackled the same chores using washtubs and washboards or even river streams.
