Shelley starred in the 1985 TV movie Single Bars Single Women which, as one writer put it, was "darn good." The film explored the singles scene for women - post women's liberation. Women had finally come out on their own, so the rules of dating were changing, fast. No longer in need of escorts and chaperones, women could now go bar-hopping alone and meet the men they want to meet. Women finally had a voice and a choice.
