Great film. I thought she was brave at the time. She was smarter than the white men sitting in judgement of her. They lacked what she had -- honesty, dignity and courage.

Very good film. Informative. She had nothing to gain for herself really. Plenty to lose, but she still stood up and fought for other women. Brave, smart. Classy.
