This "docudramedy", hosted by Babe (a.k.a. Cathy Jones of This Hour Has 22 Minutes) is a mix of fact, fun and folly. Divided into four parts: POLITICS, SEXUALITY, FAMILY, and WORK, 20th Century Gals weaves together historical re-enactments, clips from personal writings, first hand testimonials, archival records and radio & TV news clips. Babe provides the journalistic glue in her 1940's no-nonsense, tongue in cheek style. Shot in period sets at the Canadian Museum of Civilization and in a specially constructed 1940's newsroom, 20th Century Gals (According to Babe) both entertains and educates - painlessly.
