Militant feminism is alive in The Itty Bitty Titty Committee, the latest film from But I’m a Cheerleader director Jamie Babbit. The story follows Anna, a high school grad who is torn from her aimless life by Sadie and her feminist freedom fighters, the C(I)A. As the film unfolds, Anna’s devotion to the cause is only rivaled by her attraction for Sadie and, ultimately, she is forced to choose which was her true passion.

Oddly enough, the movie makes no attempt to show an oppressive patriarchal society so, if you don’t believe this is true, Anna and her compatriots come off more as miscreants than freedom fighters. Ultimately, the resolutions to both the romantic and the militant plots make this a fun movie that probably shouldn’t be taken to seriously.

The DVD also oddly lacks any real extras, especially considering the film’s many references to feminist philosophies, leaders, books and rockers.
