On 3 November, we ran our second Vote 100: Born a Rebel event at Shakespeare Hall in Durham!

At the start of the event, we all helped ourselves to cakes, sandwiches and sat down to watch Vote 100: Born a Rebel on the big screen.

The chair and a couple of the panelists were teary-eyed when they stood up after the film to tell us their ‘demands’ for the future of the UK for its women, and to discuss how they could make that happen. The conversation saw some really varied and interesting viewpoints being discussed in a friendly, respectful way. This was also the tone of the group discussion that followed, from which the attendees drew up their own list of demands, ranging from the political, to the civic, to the familial.

‘Today has shown me I need to influence change in my own community’

We then took a short break and got ready to watch the fantastic The Divine Order (with more tea and cake of course), while we ran a workshop turning our demands into placards!

‘I have heard so many different and fascinating perspectives’

The event ended with a round of applause and a cry of ‘Yay, women!’
Our next Vote 100: Born a Rebel event will be taking place in Huddersfield on Sunday 17 November. Find out more about our Huddersfield event and get your tickets here.


Available now*!


Vote 100: Born a Rebel – a 15 minute short film made by Cinema For All together with the YorkshireNorth East and North West Film Archives – is now available to book, exclusively for Cinema For All Members and Associates.


The film is an exploration of women in protest across the North of England and marks 100 years since the start of women’s suffrage in the UK. The film is supported by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme. The film scored a spectacular 96% with audiences when premiered at the Cinema For All Community Cinema Conference in September.

‘A tear in my eye while watching this film. The passion for this project really shines through. I can’t wait to see it again’ – Leigh Film Society

Showing women’s lives from the suffragettes to the miner’s strikes, and much more, the film’s title is inspired by the first person we encounter in the film – suffragette Elizabeth Dean who, celebrating her 100th birthday, defiantly tells the camera:

‘Between you and I, I must have been born a rebel!’
