Women: a success story Trailer
Working with over 100 volunteers who were provided with free film-training, our education charity WORLDwrite filmed more than 40 women from across the generations (aged 90 to 16) to reflect on how far society had advanced on the road to equality for women. The results were both exciting and challenging, providing a younger generation with an engaging first-hand social history. The final film raises big questions not least the problematic way in which women are portrayed as victims today, in need of special help and extra protection, almost a return to the Victorian view of women as less capable. This trailer is intended to encourage educational institutions, young audiences and festivals to screen the film, to consider the struggles that got us where we are today and to offset the fears young women now express. The film has already picked up eleven awards see http://www.worldwrite.org.uk/video/women-a-success-story-trailer/ but has yet to be screened across the education sector, we hope this trailer will address that. Our charity urgently needs funds & has no paid staff, but hopes to continue providing free film-training and free screenings. Ultimately this film aims to understand the past in order to shape the future.
