Lauren Wilford in full swing, buster! (Twitter/@lauren_wilford)

It’s a brilliant critique of (homage to?) how movies treated female characters during second-wave feminism and the women’s liberation movement. And it’s laugh-out-loud funny.

With Gloria Steinem styling, a WASPy tone of voice, and references to “grass,” “diaphragms” and “analysis,” writer Lauren Wilford‘s impersonation of “every woman in a ’70s movie” captures in just over one minute the characterizations that dominated a decade.

Without giving any direct references, it’s clear that Wilford drew inspiration from classic 1970s performances by Diane Keaton, Natalie Wood, Jane Fonda, Janet Margolin, Carrie Fisher and every single woman who appeared in either Shampoo or a Woody Allen movie.

All together now!


God bless the internet.
