Eleanor Bergstein on Dirty Dancing (via Genders Across Borders)

I’ve always loved Dirty Dancing, but not many people realize there is much more to the film than just a girl who falls in love.  If you look really closely, you’ll see a film about social class, liberalism, women’s rights, and a serious tone of Feminism.  This young coming-of-age girl doesn’t just change herself because of love, she changes the world around her.  And that is why I’ll always love the film, Eleanor Bergstein, and this article from Genders Across Borders.

Check out their interview with the one and only Eleanor Bergstein and what’s really behind everyone’s favorite character, “Baby.”

And don’t forget that Lionsgate just released Dirty Dancing: The Limited Keepsake Edition which features over an hour of brand new bonus features, and now available on Blu-ray.  Available now on Amazon.com
