We are so excited to launch our new project, Vote 100: Born A Rebel.
Vote 100: Born a Rebel is our newly commissioned short film made up of wonderful footage from the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives. The film was made to celebrate 100 years of women’s suffrage, and to show important footage of women throughout history.
When we were watching the film, we were inspired by the words of Elizabeth Dean who, still a proud suffragette at 100 years old, told the camera “between you and I, I think I must have been born a rebel!”
We are screening the film across 5 locations in the North of England and creating exciting events around each of them! The events will include live music, panel discussions, spoken word, theatre performance, children’s workshops, tasty food and women being great to each other!
We want more rebellious women like Mrs Dean in the film archives to inspire future generations of women – and that’s where we need your help! We would like you to send us your stories of rebellion, or of the rebellious women who inspire you, and your film could be entered into the archives.
