Help meeee!

Greetings! I have been looking on YouTube for two things. One, a really solid documentary about feminism(history, principals etc.)
And two, a documentary about women in film, (Hollywood's gender politics, independent activist filmmakers etc.)
There is one documentary about women in Hollywood films that I have found, but it's not really all that political. As for documentaries on feminist history, their doesn't seem to be much either. There are lots of videos done by antifeminist men which talk about how terrible the feminist movement is, and a lot of individual feminists discussing the various aspects of patriarchy that adversely affect their lives, but nothing that really takes a look at feminist history. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Interesting. I'm looking for youtube docs though. There don't seem to be that many on the site. Am I using the wrong key words?

Have you tried this site?

Jean Kilbourne's famous Killing Us Softly series is widely celebrated, although I haven't seen them all.

Miss Representation has also received good reviews.

These are off the top of my head, but they're not really on your topic. I'll try to think of a few more.
