Madonna & Steven Klein Release 'Secret Project' Video, Said To Be Women's Rights 'Back of the Bus' No More Anthem
Madonna and Steven Klein released their first glimpse of their new “civil rights project” that will deal with women’s rights. MTA reports that Madonna has recorded a new ballad, said to be one of the most powerful she has ever made. The cry to stop the violence against women and social violence generally is tentatively called ‘Back of the Bus’.
Steven Klein’s video is said to be inspired by the 1950s movie ‘Caged’ starring Eleanor Parker. Coincidentally, the drama takes us back to Texas. Writes Wiki:
A married 19-year-old (played by Eleanor Parker) named Marie Allen is sent to prison, after a botched armed robbery attempt with her equally young husband, Tom (who is killed). While receiving her prison physical, she finds out that she is two months pregnant. Despite the hardships she is put through under Matron Evelyn Harper (Hope Emerson), she gives birth to a healthy baby and wants to “temporarily” grant full custody to her mother. The intent is to get the baby back after she is released. However, her mother informs Marie that her callous step-father has decided that under no circumstances will he allow the baby into his house, and she uses the excuses that she’s “too old” and “hasn’t a penny in [her] name” as reasons why she can’t leave him and help Marie. The prison forces her to permanently give the child up for adoption. Marie never sees her baby again. After her exposure to hardened criminals and sadistic prison guards, by the end of the film she leaves prison a hardened woman with debts to the criminals who helped get her released from jail.
