25 August 2019 | Film City Glasgow | 3 pm |

Documentary | Directed by Ceri Dingle | UK | 2018 | 105' | This liberating tale for a new generation documents the great advance made by women over the past 100 years and celebrates women as equals in the West today. A far cry from contemporary concerns that the world is awash with predators, misogyny and bias, over forty engaging 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 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.

*Part of the National Cinema Day screenings, supported by the National Lottery and the Independent Cinema Office. Limited pre-registration tickets available via EventBrite. Remaining tickets will be distributed via cinemaday.co.uk & Show Film First.
