14 Women is a 2007 documentary film that was directed by Mary Lambert and narrated by Annette Bening. The film released on June 14, 2007, and focuses on several female Senators at the 109th United States Congress.
The film takes a look at the 109th United States Congress. When it convened, there were fourteen women in the Senate: Barbara Boxer, Maria Cantwell, Hillary Clinton, Susan Collins, Elizabeth Dole, Dianne Feinstein, Kay Bailey Hutchison, Mary Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln, Barbara Mikulski, Lisa Murkowski, Patty Murray, Olympia Snowe, and Debbie Stabenow. The documentary features interviews with several people, including the Senators' family members, Delaware Senator Joe Biden, and singer Alanis Morissette.
Politico.com and DVD Talk both gave positive reviews for 14 Women, with DVD Talk commented that while it was "far from definitive", the film has "admirable aims and will probably play well with schoolkids." Variety gave a more mixed response to the film, saying that "Political junkies, idealistic schoolgirls and everyone in between will be thrilled to vary-ing degrees" by the movie but that it also felt like a "recruitment vid for public service".
