Charlotte and Achebe Betty Powell at Equal Rights Amendment demonstration.

In celebration of Women's History Month WXXI is proud to bring you the life and work of Charlotte Bunch.

Passionate Politics, airing Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2 p.m. on WXXI World (DT21.2/cable 524), is a one-hour documentary that brings Charlotte Bunch's story to life, from idealistic young civil rights activist to lesbian separatist to internationally-recognized leader of a campaign to put women's rights, front and center, on the global human rights agenda.

Every step of the way, this is also the story of modern feminist activism, from its' roots in the 1960's struggles for social justice to its outward-branching connections with campaigns against gender-based violence in other nations, from the 1980's through the present day. A Joyce Warshow Film.
