Description

We are delighted to invite you to the London Premiere of Women: a success story, on Saturday 1st December at 11am.

Women: a success story – a liberating tale for a new generation, documents the great advances made by women over the past 100 years. The film confronts contemporary myths and prejudices that suggest the world is awash with predators, misogyny and discrimination. Forged as a timeline, interwoven with archive, forty 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. 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.

Inspired by Joanna Williams’ book, Women vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars, the film tells us women have indeed made it and made it happen. This film urges us to revel in our progress and do it with men not against them.

The screening will take place at the beautifully restored Castle Cinema, 64 - 66 Brooksby's Walk, London, E9 6DA (Near Homerton Station).
There will be a Q&A after the screening with Ceri Dingle, the director of the film and author Joanna Williams.

The cinema's splendid bar will be open and a light lunch will be served.
