Winding Snake premiere new film for International Women's Day

You are invited to the online premiere of The Female Voice, on International Women’s Day, this Friday March 8th 2019.

The Female Voice, is a new documentary film created by award winning producer Amy Morris, made with funding from the Welsh Government to mark the centenary of the passing of the Representation of the People Act.
 
100 years since some women first gained the right to vote in the UK,  filmmakers from Wales spent time in 2018, investigating the modern Welsh women’s movement.
 
Led by Amy, Cardiff-based documentary filmmaker Tash Horton and animation director Efa Blosse-Mason worked with the Go Girls group and the WOW Women's Film Club to find out just how far the battle for equality has come in Wales. Using questions prepared by the Go Girls during a series of educational workshops, prominent Welsh women were asked about their experiences or living, loving and working in Wales.
 
About the project Amy says, “there’s been a lot of activity in the last few years, around the third age of feminism, more questions are being asked about what we can do to make our society a fairer and safer place. During this project, the girls at Winding Snake spent time with some great women living and working in Wales today and it’s been a really empowering experience for us and the Go Girls. It’s been so hard to walk away, I want to hear more from all of the women we spoke with. Hopefully, our audience will agree, but I think it’s a real must-see film for young women, trying to make space for themselves in Wales.”
 
The Female Voice will be available to watch for free online this Friday. Follow Winding Snake on Twitter to access the link @winding_snake.
