8:22Copy video clip URL “In Black and White. Report. State of the Movement.” By Nancy Cain. Cain takes us to the Little Miss 4th of July beauty contest.  In this event, very young girls are judged on poise, personality, posture, neatness, and grooming.  It’s a poignant and revealing commentary on contemporary values.  Although it took place in 1970’s, it can now be seen as a thematic precursor of tragic events (Jean Benet Ramsey) and Hollywood films (Little Miss Sunshine) which followed in later decades.  The event and the sensibilities of its participants—adult and children–stand in distinct contradiction to the Women’s Movement and growing feminism evolving at the same time.  It concludes with the winning contestant intercut with images of beauty contests on TV. Culturally significant early video.
