The American feminist movement has its share of critics. However, if one is aware of how prevalent advancing the inferior status status of women was in film and the literature, then the formation of said movement is quite understandable and sensible.
The silent move titled The Lodger: A story of the London Fog, had a rather dim misogynistic view of marriage.
