Women: A Success Story Trailer

Capture

WORLDwrite’s new film Women: a success story, will launch at the Battle of Ideas festival at the Barbican on Sunday 14th October in Cinema 3. Tickets are available from www.battleofideas.org.uk This liberating tale for a new generation documents the great advances of the past 100 years and celebrates women as equals in the West today. Confronting contemporary myths and prejudices that suggest the world is awash with predators, misogyny and discrimination, over 50 women give us a fresh perspective, tell us we have nothing to fear and can do anything. From across the generations, they share their life stories, what they overcame and what’s changed. Interwoven with original archive footage, we learn of women in the cotton mills, life during the war, the 1984 miners’ strike, from outdoor loos, Terry nappies and illegal abortions to pre-marital sex, freedom and making it in what was once a man’s world. The full film will be available from November 2018, email world.write@btconnect.com for details and to book a screening. Share the trailer and spread the message.
